Bells Luke Chapter 2: The Christmas Story
1 AND it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David... [Read More]

Bells Joseph, Mary and Jesus


By Jeff Westover

The story is one we repeat each Christmas throughout life. "And lo, the shepherds were abiding their fields by night". We can practically recite these phrases from memory. And yet, behind the story and the legend and some say, the myth, lies the compelling story of real individuals in a most unique circumstance.

The story of Joseph, for example, is one that is particularly poignant. Here was a man of royal lineage recognized publicly for his patriarchal standing.... [Read More]

Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart." -- George Matthew Adams

Christmas Defined


Christmas is the commemoration of the calling and anointing of Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world.

The first Christmas celebration happened in a pre-mortal state when, according to scripture, "... the morning stars sang together and the sons of God shouted for joy." (Job 38:7)

This celebration took place "before the world was" in a gathering of the spirit children of God the Father.

All of the souls of humankind who have lived or who will live on the face of the earth were p... [Read More]

Bells Christmas Before Christ


By Jeff Westover

His letter came as a shock.

In it he called me just about every name in the book. As the Managing Editor of My Merry Christmas I was used to receiving letters critical of our efforts to supply information about Christmas. But his letter was especially bitter and filled with condemnation. "How can you tell children to believe in Santa Claus? He is evil. His name is the literal anagram for SATAN.
