STOP AND THINK – Do they still make wooden Christmas trees? (Charlie Brown, Peanuts cartoon character)

Christmas is just three weeks away and already children are excited, anticipating the holidays and gifts.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:17)
