Christmas Caroling

a Biblical thought...
Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. (Luke 12:22-23)

a Book thought... from The Divine Mentor by Wayne Cordeiro
The choices you make regarding the foundations of your life have eternal implications that go far beyond your life span on earth. (p21)

Australian Ladies Salvation Army Band 1906

a Dave thought...
It was great to go out caroling with the band last night around the streets of Box Hill. This tradition which has been around for over 100 years is still loved and appreciated by many Australians. The amount of conversations I have with people who tell me that they hope the band comes down their street this Christmas is amazing. So do people just like the live brass music, or do they like giving money, or is it just a novelty they get one night a year that they look forward to? I’m not sure, but I do believe there is no greater use of our brass bands than at Christmas time in the community playing carols, so lets all get our instruments out and hit the streets once again.

Just a thought.
