Morning Talk: Jim Calhoun
Luke 2:8-19, King James Version
This is how I first heard the Christmas story.
King James original from Linus van Pelt (from the Peanuts comic strip).
I can’t say it makes me sad.
It was a fine way to be introduced to Christmas.
Later, when I was 11 or 12, I found our family Bible, my grandmother’s Bible and read it for myself. King James again. I loved this story but I didn’t much understand it yet. That was still a few years away. Then I found myself, my life in this story.
I want to go through it today and point to some of the parts that still hold my attention, my affection. Things that continue to make this story so compelling to me.
