The Word for today:
Stand in the Rain is going to rejoice today and then tomorrow all over again, because there is so much rejoicing to do and so little time to do it!
We find it fitting that our reading schedule for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the Feast of Stephen (December 26th, the day "Good King Wenceslaus looked out") consists of the "Hallelujah Psalms."
These Psalms (146 through 150) each begin and end with the same word: Hallelujah.
Hallelujah is a Hebrew phrase. Your Bibles will translate it as "Praise the LORD."
So that's what we're going to do. To show you how with it we are, we're going to link you to a recent flash mob performance of the "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's Messiah.
Merry Christmas, and Praise the LORD!
