One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is the music. Whether it’s Bing Crosby, Alvin and the Chipmunks or the Choir at Kings College – holiday music holds a special place in my heart. And these days, it’s almost impossible to miss it on the radio. Let’s see what they’re playing now…

You better watch out, you better not cry,

You better not pout I’m telling you why,

Santa Claus is coming to town

He's making a list, checking it twice,

Gonna find out who's naughty and nice,

Santa Claus is coming to town.

While traveling through Dana Point, California, I stopped into a pizza shop hoping to get a bite to eat. As I placed my order and made my way to an empty booth, I started looking around the room. The walls were covered with old surfboards and vintage beach photographs. But one decoration caught my eye: a small “Thank You” card mounted in an elegant frame. As I looked closer, I realized why so much care had gone into this tiny decoration.

It was a “Thank you” card from former president George H.W. Bush.

I grew up as a grandson of immigrants. Both of my grandfathers had journeyed to America as adults, one fleeing a revolution and the other seeking his fortune. But both of them shared a similarity – they both hoped to see their culture passed down to their grandchildren. So I endured many an afternoon of “tutoring.”

Have you ever heard of Spare Change for Change? It’s a program that the city of Pasadena rolled out to help combat homelessness. It works like this. As you’re walking through Old Town, if you pass a special parking meter, you can donate whatever change you have – a few pennies, maybe a couple of quarters. The philosophy is that they can use anything.

Orson Welles used to say that the role he played in The Third Man movie was one of the best “star-parts” he’d ever had. He went on to explain that a star part is one of those roles where everybody talks about a character until the audience is on the edge of their seats. And then, finally – the star arrives, plays the scene and leaves. And with their departure, everything in the story changes and all of the characters are left to wrestle with the new situation.

You might not expect to see a theologian on the cover of TIME magazine, but in April 1962, that’s exactly where you could find Karl Barth. For anyone who doesn’t know, Barth was lauded by many as the most important theologian of the last century. And for us here at GCI, his work was instrumental in helping us grow in our knowledge of the loving Triune God.

But what was so great about Barth?

The other day I was listening to a podcast when I heard a story about a troop of British Girl Scouts living in China during World War II who where interned in a Japanese concentration camp. And while they endured horrible conditions and were forced to go without food and water for long periods of time, these Scouts didn’t let the circumstances get them down.
