My friends know that I love a good story. A good Christmas story is even better. Each year I try to write an original piece to tell to my congregation on Christmas Eve. So I was delighted to find this collection of delightful stories that have nothing to do with Rudolph or Santa. Many of them are classic tales with a European twist to them; some have fantastic creatures and woebegone orphans; all have some hope and light of Christ. These are wonderful for reading out loud or to yourself. There are some songs and poems in here as well. I found that reading one of these each night helped me become a better Christian - and better prepared for the Christmas season. This is a profoundly wise and hopeful vision that is birthed in the tradition of Christmas and anchored in the heart of community.
