The Zippy Crew takes you over the river and through the woods with a review of a fantastic new Nat “King” Cole Christmas album, sharing of Christmas memories and reflections on the upcoming 12 Days of Christmas. Also, Special Guest Jim Krenning joins us for a preview of an adventure through the Psalms in the New Year.
This episode was so much fun. I hope you enjoy it!
The Christmas Story is full of a special kind of gift giving. But have those gifts been misplaced?
God has guided His People over history. As we look at that history, does it tell us anything about how He views us today?

Melanie turns us to Micah this week to think about how God has a plan for our salvation throughout all time. There’s even a hint of Christmas in what she shares!
Merry Christmas (in July)! I couldn’t resist jingling all the way into 1 Corinthians today! Oh what fun it is to share God’s Word with you! 🎄
I haven't been able to share this on my blog until now because I had started some “renovations” that took the blog down over Christmas, but I put together a new 12 Days of Christmas devotional this year and would love to invite you to join me in journeying through Romans as we enjoy the afterglow of Christmas. It isn't too late to start! Check it out here.
For the last six years, I have had the joy to share God's Word the Sunday after Christmas (seven years ago, my first Christmas as a pastor, I shared a message the Sunday before Christmas).
