It's that most wonderful time of year again! Cold, snow, ice and layered clothing are part of winter up north. But down here in Florida, it's warm, sunny, beaches and shorts. Not a bad exchange for me but I do miss the Christmas season in New York City. Except for the shovelling of snow. As a Colorado transplant explained to me, "You can't shovel rain". No matter where you may live, Christmas is where the heart is and the birthday celebration of Jesus Christ with friends and family.

I just love singing Christmas carols and Brotherhood will be doing so at a few local events before the holidays. It's that special time when we proclaim the Savior's birth in song. Our sets would not be complete without "Silent Night" and "White Christmas" which are my all time favorites. We've added "There's No Place Like Home" and "Do You Hear What I Hear", as well.

The guys in Brotherhood are getting ready for the holidays, too. Dan had a throat infection that kept him "quietly" at home but, praise God, he's back at full strength. Dan is busy working on his ministers license. Phil is preparing to return to his home after interior renovations are complete. Along with John, our buddy Mel is checking out travel arrangements as Brotherhood contemplates some concert dates outside of Florida. Please, keep us in your prayers!!

As the Christmas song reminds us, "Go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born". This is an opportune time to share the good news with those around us. Brotherhood wishes everyone a merry and blessed Christmas... and may they "always be bright!"
