This devotion was shared by NLC bass Paul Wilson prior to one of the Christmas Festival concerts in Saint Louis on December 20, 2014.
"The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight."
Throughout human existence fear and hope intersect - usually in that order. One of these intersecting points occurred on Christmas Day in 1914, when the powerless front line soldiers in WWI did something the Great Generals of the time could not: make peace.
And in our own history and the history of our country, we find many of these intersecting points. Fear; hope.
