LIBRARY NEWS DECEMBER 2018

Can it be December already? Our book cart has

been changed over to our collection of Christmas

books...fiction, devotionals, advent studies and

other non-fiction selections. May they provide a

way for you to slow down and come closer to Jesus

the true reason for this season.

Our first selection this month is The Best of

Guideposts Christmas a collection of short Christ-

mas stories that have appeared in the magazine

over a 60 year period. Some author’s are people

we are familiar with, many are not, but they all

share memories of their Christmas’.

Windows on Christmas by Bill Crowder tells

how Christmas can be viewed from many different

perspectives such as The Window of Exaltation…

The Angles; The Window of Worship...The Shepherds;

The Window of Obedience...Joseph and four others.

It is a fresh perspective that can enhance our wonder

and joy as we view it through others’ eyes.

Our fiction selection is The Christmas Light by Donna

VanLiere which tells the story of five people who are

brought together by the production of a live Naitivity at

a local church. Lives are changed and new beginings

are made possible.

Lastly, we have the picture book The First Christmas

by Carol Heyer which is a wonderful option for sharing

Jesus’ birth with younger children.

May you have an opportunity to slow down a bit and

read something that will draw you closer to Jesus during

this His birthday month.

Blessings,

 

Karen Wambaugh-Librarian
