Dear Friends,
I am a collector of Christmas stories.  I’ve always thought a story is better than a sermon on Christmas Eve, so I dip into my collection each year and choose one I think you will like.
There is one I have never used.  It is one of my favorites, but it has never seemed quite right for Christmas Eve.  I thought maybe today would be the day to send it to you.  It is called “The Jubilee Agreement.”  The author is Terry Beck.
I hope you like it.  I think you will.
In Christ,
John
