I was reading the blog of Edward Waters, someone I consider a friend, and I was struck by how much his thoughts and mine are blown by the same wind:
- Both of us make Advent a cornerstone of our Christmas worship
- We both agree on the ability of God to redeem even the pagan things of culture and turn them into things that glorify him
- We are both saddened by the commercial manifestations of Christmas
- We both marvel at the awesomeness of the incarnation of God in the form of a child for our salvation
His post about Christmas is a worthy read, and I encourage everyone to take a look.
Also, you can check out his excellent music here.
