Put The Christ Back In Christmas...

Several years ago I had the privilege of working with Roy Mills, an Australian musician and worship leader. He had written a collection of Christmas songs, and in the process of recording them, I was brought in to be involved in the project.

The recording was to be called "Put The Christ Back In Christmas", and as we worked with the singers and musicians in arranging and recording, I began to get an idea for a Christmas story based on the theme that was emerging through the songs.

Roy gave me permission to move forward, and together with the collaborative services of my writing partner, Rick Libert, we produced the musical "Put The Christ Back In Christmas". Four performances in a dessert-theatre setting to packed audiences complete with a trailer park, and an Elvis impersonator produced great music and script, many changes lives, and some great memories.

Why an I referencing this story in my Blog? Well, the idea of Put The Christ Back In Christmas is not a new thought among Christians. And the regular readers of this Blog know that I always seek to encourage creativity in others. Therefore, I am asking...

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I try to encourage my friends and others to look at Christ during this season, do something to bless someone. Like buy them a Starbucks seasonal coffee. People need to see CHRIST this time of year not the grinch.

Most recently, reviving an adaption of a timeless story, A Christmas Carol, to present the story of all time, story of Jesus, to introduce the unchurched not to just a baby in manger but to the Savior of man. Next week replacing "dirty Santa" gift exchange Christmas party with scavenger hunt that ends with leaving toys at Toys for Tots drop-off.

Hope to see you soon, Brad and family!
