Searching for Joy by Linda Baten JohnsonWhen young widow Ingrid Larkin opens the door of her tenement on a cold December night, trouble enters. Living in the shadow of the meat packing plant, death often comes calling, but the injured worker brought to her door is a stranger.
Caleb Finsson’s dangerous assignments never threaten anyone but himself, until he lists a fictitious address on a work card that matches the residence of a beautiful woman.
Separate goals lead Ingrid and Caleb to Joy, Illinois, a little town whose very name promises hope and happiness, but both must resolve past issues before searching for a joy-filled future.

On a quiet, calm night in Bethlehem, heaven's light broke through the darkness with the birth of Christ. Shepherds and wise men joined a host of angels to rejoice in this divine arrival on earth. Join us as we take a journey back in time to this incredible story with our Ready To Sing musical for Christmas. The arrangements by Russell Mauldin and narration by Sue C. Smith unfold the wonder of the events that took place in Bethlehem and move our hearts to songs of celebration of the greatest gift we know.

Little Town of Bethlehem by The Joy Strings
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love to decorate, and setting up the Nativity of Jesus is the highlight. I have carried that same feeling of joy and honor to the task each year in my own home. What does it mean to be a Christian in Bethlehem? It is also a call: a call for us to be an integral part of our society, a call for us to stay steadfast in our country, and a call for us to witness to the values of Christianity and the values of peace, justice, and reconciliation as well as living together in this country. How do you find joy in Bethlehem? My answer to them is because we have eternal happiness, happiness that comes from resurrection.
