New This Year: Christmas Storytelling
This year author Mike Mason will join us by the fireside to read Christmas stories from his work, including excerpts from Twenty-One Candles, The Blue Umbrella and his new book Jesus, His Story in Stone!
“It has been my delight to listen as Mike Mason read aloud many of these stories— a score plus one. They bring a unique brightness, because in one way or another they illuminate more than just snow scenes and families around hearth fires. With a light and often whimsical touch, Mason’s tales speak of the way ‘people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light’ (Mt 12:16).”
