An Incredible Act of Generosity

As we come within hours of a day marked by believers and non-believers alike with a spirit of giving; here’s an example of that kind of giving spirit in action.  Today I want all of you to click the links. I dare you. The first one will take less than 1:00 to read and will make you want to click the second.  But it’s not for the weak of faith.

This is the Christmas Sunday service at Cross Point church in Nashville, Tennessee where Pete Wilson pastors.

To prepare you for what you’re about to read, here’s the short version.

Now that you’re ready for it, here’s the detailed version.

That is one amazing Christmas service people will long remember.

And what better time to remind my Canadian readers that we have two days left to contribute to the Salvation Army iKettle. Click here to donate. Your donations stay with the S.A. branch closest to your community.

Watch or listen to the service at Cross Point.  Go to their media page and select December 20th.



  1. I loved that! Two years ago at our VBS we chose Soles4Souls as our outreach. The mountain of shoes was astounding! It feels good to give

  2. In what I’m hoping will win the award for “Comment That Focuses on the Wrong Thing” for 2012:

    Is it just me, or is it mildly ironic that a photographer seems to know little about contrast? Black type on a DARK blue background? Really? ;-)

    • 2012?

      I have a Javascript function on my Firefox taskbar that converts all those reverse image blogs to black on white anyway. One click and they’re normal.

      I think you’ve used up your three comments for today.
