A Greeting for Christmas 2008 & New Years 2009

From an Old Rough Cradle

From an old rough cradle

To the old rugged cross,

From a manger of hay

To mansions of glory,

From Heaven to earth

To Heaven again,

Flows the steam

Of Redemption’s story.

© 2008, Wesley G. Vaughn

May the peace of God

reign in your hearts,

not only at this season,

but throughout the coming year.

Yours ever,

Wesley & Patty Vaughn

I found this column by Michael Medved. It is just as relevant today as it was in April 2007. Just click on the link to go to the article:

My reaction: I went to high school and college in the 1960s. This was the decade of the Hippies. Many of them were rebelling against the establishments of their parents, more particularly the watered-down liberalism of mainline institutions and the materialism of well-to-do families.

This decade also saw young people flocking to join the Peace Corps, drawn by the call to give of themselves for others.
