I hope that these notes from a small Midwestern town as the curtain falls on 1955 may provide a few moments of change and relaxation in your holiday schedule. Several weeks ago a wise and thoughtful brother stopped at the office and said: "Do you know that this will be a preacher's Christmas? It comes on Sunday. That means that I won't have to preach two sermons a few days before or after Christmas Day. This year I can concentrate.""
