Just wanted to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas…..
We wrapped up the Christmas tour at the Ryman last night and it was truly a special ending to a great tour. Amy and Vince have never sounded better and the home crowd gave them an incredibly warm welcome (not always the case in Nashville). Some specific highlights included Corrina coming on stage both nights to recite the Christmas passage from Luke during "I Need A Silent Night," Sarah and her dear friend, Brooks, surprising Amy with an early Christmas gift — performing "Baby It's Cold Outside," Vince leaving very few dry eyes in the crowd with his new song, "Bread and Water," and Amy delivering a stirring version of "Breath of Heaven" both nights.
I'm rushing off to a Christmas Eve service but didn't want to let the days without wishing all of you a very blessed holiday. I hope tonight and tomorrow, regardless of your faith or lack there of, allows you the time to take stock of your blessings — big and small — and to celebrate rich connections with family and friends. For all of you — and especially those of you who might be struggling this season –breathe deep and remember that you are loved by the very God who sent his son to be born homeless on earth yet destined for eternal significance beyond measure.
