“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

It's bitterly cold in Canada: December 21st is the longest night of the year, particularly in this part of the northern hemisphere where I live. 

The fireplace you see behind my picture at the top of the blog has a roaring fire warming my home. My wife is Christmas baking and knitting something for a grandchild. I think I'll settle in with my copy of A Christmas Carol and re-read this classic by Charles Dickens. (It's a custom during the Christmas Season.)

There's a big-screen TV in the living-room; I'm going to put on the following YouTube video of the King's College Choir singing Christmas carols. Listen for yourself by clicking on the image. Enjoy!

Drop temperature, drop! Frost my windows for all I care. I'm cozy inside my little house on this longest night of the year.
