We all need to simplify. Watch this video and think about how your family celebrates Christmas. It bothered me to read all the horror stories from the Black Friday shopping this past weekend. People trampled, people shot, people camping out for days just to get a few dollars off. All of it is so far from what Christmas is really about. I want to challenge you to think about what you could do with the money you typically spend on each other for Christmas.

The simple question we must continually ask ourselves is this, “Have we lost Christ in Christmas?”

At Cornerstone we have opportunities to make a difference both here in our hometown and around the world through our mission projects. Please consider partnering with us as we seek to share the love of Christ with a lost and hurting world.


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.
