Christmas Day has come and gone, and thankfully, I've been able to minimize use of the internet over the long holiday weekend. Which is good, because it means more time was spent with family. Unfortunately for the home reader, though, it means that many blogworthy items were never recorded for posterity. I hope you'll understand.

One cool thing I noticed on Christmas Eve was that little Methodist churches are great for dusting off under-used verses of old hymns. For example, the following verse of "O Come All Ye Faithful" doesn't even appear in the hymnal at our church (maybe it sounds too creed-like?), but it appears in all its glory in the UMC hymnal.
True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
Lo, He shuns not the Virgin’s womb;
Son of the Father, begotten, not created;
Very cool. Three cheers for solid yet under-appreciated verses!
