Favorite Christmas Song This Year

I am not a huge fan of Christmas music. I mean, I like it, but I’m not one of those people who can listen to it in the middle of July. I like to listen to it for about 3-4 weeks, and then I’m ready to put it away until next year. Anyway, there always seems to be one song that just really stands out to me every year. It’s the one song that I will want to listen to even when January comes along and the tree is put back up. This year the song is “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” by Casting Crowns. We had the opportunity to see them just a little over a week ago and see them sing this song live. It was probably the best Christmas concert I have ever been to, as not only Casting Crowns, but also Natalie Grant, Avalon and Denver and the Mile High Orchestra were performing. I wanted to post a YouTube of them singing the song live so everyone can hear it. If you haven’t yet, perhaps it is one that will bring you as much joy as it has brought me this Christmas season. Mark Hall has an incredible gift of being able to refurbish old Christmas songs and really bring new emphasis to their already powerful messages. This song is definitely a great example of that. So, hope you enjoy.

I Married my bride, Erin, in 2003. We have 3 children: Emma, Elijah, and Lydia. I have served full-time on staff at Westwood Baptist Church, in Roxboro, NC, since summer of 2006 as Pastor of Students & Discipleship. I am currently enrolled at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing my Doctorate of Education.
