          Joy floods my heart with each service as Anne and I worship in your delightful churches. From the sound exposition of the Word of God by your pastors, the heartfelt music by your worship leaders, and the loving fellowship of your sweet, church families , God warmed our hearts with true worship and the experience of His gift of grace.
          But those boxes! Those Christmas boxes located in predominate places throughout everybody's place of worship represents a vital ingredient for true worship. A vital pa rt of worship is giving.
          Since that first Christmas day over 2,000 years ago, God gave new meaning to giving when He gave the ?unspeakable gift? of His Son (2 Corinthians 9:15). God came in human form when Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
          I heard abo ut an association in the mountains that was packing a shipment of food for the poor in Central America. A team of ladies in the association were separating beans from powdered milk, and canned vegetables from canned meats. Reaching into a box filled with c ans from a church in their association, they pulled out a little, brown paper sack. Apparently one their poor children who rode one of their buses contributed something different from the items on the suggested list. Out of the paper bag fell a peanut butter sandwich, a pop tart, a cookie, and a small box of coloring crayons. Crayoned in large letters was a little girl's name, ?Anna Brother Bob's bus.? She had given up her lunch for some hungry person in God's name.
          Whenever we give out of a heart of co ncern for people in need, we are making a sacrifice that pleases the Lord (Philippians 4:18). We all know the greatest need any person may have is their need of hearing the gospel so they may come into a saving relationship with Jesus for eternity and esca pe an eternity separated from God in that place called hell.
          The great commission is costly, but I know our churches in the Taylor Baptist Association are willing to do with less to magnify Christ more and reach this lost world with the Christmas message.
          Remember...Those Boxes!

    Merry Christmas,
    Henry Cannington
