One Hundred years ago “all heaven broke out” in no-man’s land, between the trenches in Western Europe.   The miracle of Christmas peace was the subject of my meditation last night at our Christmas Eve Service.  I found my inspiration from this video: an e-Christmas Card  from Luther College in Iowa.  One of our members teaches flute at Luther.  The story has long haunted me as a possibility of what Christ’s love can do in the “real world.”  After seeing this e-postcard  I did more research and discovered more about the miracle of Christmas peace.   Do your own research and see what you find out.  See if you wouldn’t prefer peace in the relationships of your life. If those troops made peace in the midst of war, what might you do?

Merry Christmas.   PS – watch this on full screen.  Hit the setting gear to select HD -quality and then double click anywhere on the video for full screen.

Thanks, Nina. Gwen sent me the Luther College e-card. Her sister Carol teaches there. It reminded me of the power of Christ and I wanted to share the story Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
