  • The countdown started some weeks ago – the excitement, the preparations, the lights and decorations. Many people are anticipating this special event.

    All of this for what? Santa Claus is coming to town. For many this is very important, but others think about the coming of One not from the North Pole and riding on a sleigh, but coming on clouds of the sky.

    Nations all over the world are awaiting his coming. His arrival will fulfill prophecies hundreds of years old. He will bring gifts, but they will not be based upon goodness, but upon grace.
