Sunday Praise & Worship | Christmas Jams 2017

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone.

If you’re traveling to be with family and friends, please be safe.

Silent Night” (German: “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht”) is a popular Christmas carol. The original lyrics of the song “Stille Nacht” were written in Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria, by the priest Father Joseph Mohr and the melody was composed by the Austrian headmaster Franz Xaver Gruber. In 1859, John Freeman Young (second Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Florida) published the English translation that is most frequently sung today.[1] The version of the melody that is generally sung today differs slightly (particularly in the final strain) from Gruber’s original, which was a sprightly, dance-like tune in 6/8 time, as opposed to the slow, meditative lullaby version generally sung today. Today, the lyrics and melody are in the public domain.

    Tax Bill May Cause Charitable Giving to Dry Up
    December 24, 2017 at 8:03 am EST

    Many U.S. charities are worried the tax overhaul bill signed by President Trump on Friday could spur a landmark shift in philanthropy, speeding along the decline of middle-class donors and transforming charitable gift-giving into a pursuit largely left to the wealthy.

    The source of concern is how the tax bill is expected to sharply reduce the number of taxpayers who qualify for the charitable tax deduction — a big driver of gifts to nonprofits. One study predicts that donations will fall by at least $13 billion, about 4.5 percent, next year. That decline is expected to be concentrated among gifts from the middle of the income scale. The richest Americans will mostly keep their ability to take the tax break.

  15. I love mustard greens. I could eat them all week and not get tired but I look at ALL those bunches of greens in that bag and think….🤨🤨🤨. Well, I’d better get after it, they’re not going to clean themselves. My cousin -in laws- have a garden and gave me bunches and bunches of mustards + cabbage. Not cooking the cabbage tho.
