I want to wish a Merry Christmas to everyone in the blogosphere from one of the most “unchurched” cities in the nation (along with Portland, OR; Portland, ME; San Francisco; Sacramento; and Boston). May you, your family and friends, and your other loved ones be blessed this Christmas season.

To my Puget Sound friends, be sure to remember:

ἰδοὺ γὰρ εὐαγγελίζομαι ὑμῖν χαρὰν μεγάλην ἥτις ἔσται παντὶ τῷ λαῷ, ὅτι ἐτέχθη ὑμῖν σήμερον σωτὴρ ὅς ἐστιν χριστὸς κύριος ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ

“For behold, I bring you good news, a great joy, which is for all people, because a savior was born to you today in the city of David—he is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11)
