  • On Singing Christmas...Christmas sermon pt 3

    On Singing Christmas… Posted on December 18, 2010 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.And this shall be a sign unto you;...

    Irving Berlin, 1906. Photo from Wikimedia Commons Late in 1940, so the story goes, Irving Berlin found himself in Los Angeles writing songs for the movie "Holiday Inn," starring two of the biggest stars of the moment, Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire.  The challenge Berlin had set himself was enormous: to capture the spirit of major holidays in popular song.  And the Christmas song had to be the best of all.  Nothing about Los Angeles, where he found himself, reminded him of the Christmases he'd known as a young boy back in New York City. The snow, the cold...

  • (Vanity) A Rarely Heard Christmas Carol: Where Shepherds Lately Knelt.

    A rarely heard Christmas Carol. 1. Where shepherds lately knelt and kept the angel's word, I come in half belief, a pilgrim strangely stirred, but there is room and welcome there for me, but there is room and welcome there for me.2. In that unlikely place I find him as they said: sweet newborn babe, how frail! and in a manger bed, a still, small voice to cry one day for me, a still, small voice to cry one day for me. 3. How should I not have known Isaiah would be there, his prophecies fulfilled? With pounding heart I...

    Since 2003, the Pro-Life Action League has held an “Empty Manger” Christmas caroling day outside abortion clinics in our headquarters city of Chicago and the surrounding area, and Saturday we continued that tradition, visiting eight area facilities—five in Chicago and three in DuPage county. Over the years women have occasionally chosen life for their babies when they heard the songs of Christmas outside the abortion facility, and on Saturday four women that we know of cancelled their abortion appointments! Three Babies Saved at Planned Parenthood Aurora The day started outside Planned Parenthood’s Aurora, Illinois mega-center where we’ve been caroling since...
  • ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ Is The Worst Christmas Song Ever

    The worst Christmas song ever isn’t actually a Christmas song. It’s just a song that uses Christmas in the hook and was popular when it was released. So Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas” gets played every year starting at the end of November. Every year, I think that the awfulness comes in part from the refreshed shock of dreadful lyrics I’ve not heard in 11 months. Instead, my loathing of the song grows through the season and year by year. So as it starts playing on repeat—and the 30th anniversary edition regales us with two versions this season—a...

    Just wondering if anyone's local radio stations are playing Christmas music yet. We have a station up here in Seattle that changed their website format to Christmas at midnight last night. Their on-air music is still 'normal', but they have an online channel of nothing but Christmas music. If they follow tradition, they'll be switching their on-air format on Nov. 15th to all-Christmas...two Fridays before Thanksgiving.

    For those tired of hearing the same Christmas songs by the same artists over and over again I have a suggestion.Paul McCartney's music publishing company maintains a free multi-channel online radio that features Christmas music by many artists performing traditional and not-so-traditional songs. What they have in common is the publishing rights are owned by MPL Communications and are offered for licensing with the click of a button.Clicking the source link should take you directly to the Happy Holidays station. Other stations available are the Macca Mix (McCartney solo catalogue), 30s Hits, Rock Classics and Bert Berns. In the past...

    With a week to go before the big day, I’ve need to get something off my chest: If I hear Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime” again I’m going to convert to Norse paganism, grab a battle-ax and lay waste to the local all-holiday radio station. The choir of children sing their song! Ding dong! Ding dong! Ding dong! ding Ahhhhhhh… "SECURITY! A Viking just killed the board op! Save us from the wrath of the Northmen!" The ex-Beatle abomination is number one on my list and I can’t even bear to embed the video. But there are other horrifying songs that...

    ANCOUVER (CBS Seattle) - Two young girls who were trying to spread holiday cheer were kicked off of a grocery store’s property for singing Christmas carols. Ayla Bascom and Kaitlyn Manseau chose the WinCo near their home to give shoppers “a warm fuzzy feeling,” KATU reported. The girls made a sign stating they didn’t want any money and no one went into the store to file a complaint either. Instead, people stopped outside to listen to them sing popular Christmas carols.
