I met Dwayne Buhler several years ago in a shuttle enroute from the Mt. Hermon Christian Writers’ Conference to the San Jose airport. As we talked, we discovered several common denominators: we both live in British Columbia, we share a passion for missions, and amazingly, we have loved ones with hydrocephalus (too much water on the brain).
Dwayne and I have stayed in touch since our first meeting. He’s now the Executive Director of Missions Fest Vancouver, a ministry that brings together 250 Christian organizations for an annual three-day conference in January. My husband and I attend each year and host a booth for International Messengers Canada.
Today’s blog post features Dwayne’s new book, Gold, Common Sense, and Myrrh. It’s a collection of 10 Christmas stories that take place on Christmas Eve in countries around the world. This book makes me want to draw my family close, snuggle near a crackling fireplace while sipping hot cocoa, and enjoy tales of Christmas in other cultures.
Dwayne has graciously granted permission to feature one entire story from his book. I know you’ll enjoy it as the Christmas season approaches. You’ll find it here: http://lukefiveten.blogspot.ca/
Have a great weekend!
