Amy Grant, Matthew West & VeggieTales get it
This from USA Today: “What if December looked different this year? What if we all gave Christmas away?” That’s the refrain from the theme song of a new Christmas video from VeggieTales, the animated children’s stories that share gentle Gospel messages… VeggieTales teams up with Samaritan’s Purse for Operation Christmas Child this year: U.S. director Randy Riddle says that despite the recession, the ministry will deliver a record 8 million boxes worldwide, including 5.2 million from U.S. families, up from 4.9 million last year. Driving up the numbers, he says: singe Amy Grant crooning the theme song on radio and tie-ins with VeggieTales and the nation’s leading Christian retailer, Family Christian Stores. Singer/songwriter Matthew West was commissioned by VeggieTales to write the song “Give This Christmas Away.” Are you involved with Operation Christmas Child? What is your church doing this year to impact the poor ? Here’s an idea. Or how about a gift that glorifies? Photo cred: Big Idea, Inc. View on YouTube below or here.
