More in favor of Christmas carols

Fellow blogger Jason Morehead composed what works as a nice little follow up, and a fantastic little Advent meditation, to my recent Christmas carol inquiry.

I love a good Christmas carol, and not just because it puts me in a pleasant holiday mood, gives me warm feelings towards my fellow man, and causes me to wax nostalgic for the Christmases of yore—though those are all certainly good things. I love a good carol because the best Christmas carols are some of the most perfect encapsulations of Christian theology around. And “The Friendly Beasts” most certainly falls into that category.

Visit Opus and read his post, The Friendly Beasts, before Christmas day. You won’t be sorry.

He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
