The Christophers wish everyone a blessed and joyful Advent and Christmas season!
As we distribute our “Three Minutes a Day” book for 2014, it is heartening to receive feedback from those who look forward to our newest collection of inspirational stories. For instance, a young woman currently serving the last year of a prison sentence wrote to tell us how much she loves our daily readings and to ask for one last free copy to sustain her through the year.
Thanks to our donors we are able to distribute “Three Minutes a Day” for free to military personnel, prison ministry programs, and those struggling with addiction. We give this book to those most in need of inspiration, whether that need arises from a job they perform to keep our country safe, the mistakes they have made in their lives, or other difficult circumstances. “Three Minutes a Day” continues to uplift the hearts of those who receive it, and we thank our donors for making this happen.
For other stories that uplift the spirit, please be sure to check out Tony Rossi’s "Christopher Closeup" blog, where he highlights important stories from all aspects of our culture. Some of his recent features include an interview with the hilarious Tim Conway from "The Carol Burnett Show" - and another interview with marriage counselors and authors Dr. Greg and Lisa Popcak about building a marriage that taps into God's love. In addition, Tony has been posting Father Morris’ video series along with short written introductions to each new segment. Father Morris’ videos always call viewers to live a life in line with gospel values, so we encourage everyone to take a few minutes to watch one and to consider returning regularly to follow this exciting new endeavor.
Our mission here at The Christophers is to challenge our readers and listeners to make a positive difference in the world. Your support makes you a partner in that mission, and for that you have our deepest thanks.
God bless you during this holy Christmas season!
