Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop

“…Seeing Christ at Christmas has made a significant impact on my life. In the fall of 1982, I decided to make a wormy chestnut roll top desk and give it to a pastor at Christmas.

Kindness seems like a lost art these days.  Whether you are driving, shopping, at a movie, or just lounging at home, kind words and compassion has been tossed out the window and replaced by sarcasm and  anger.  Tonight’s sermons is all about Being Kind to One Another.  We must be willing to show Christian courtesy.  Be kind to one another because God has surely been kind […]
