Merry Christmas from John Chrysostom

In 386, John “the Golden Tongue” Chrysostom preached the very first Christmas sermon.  It’s beautiful.  And in spite of the fact that my forbears, the Puritans, refused to celebrate Christmas and punished anyone who did, I read Chrysostom’s sermon every year and revel in the beauty of it.

I encourage you to do the same. You can find it here.

And Merry Christmas to you.
