John Henry Faulk's Christmas Story

While home for Thanksgiving, John Henry Faulk’s Christmas Story was shared with my family. I want to share this beautiful Christmas story with you. This narrative touches on some of the themes of the gospel: concern for the poor, equality of all races, and making room for all at the table. From the beginning of the audio file:

In 1974, the NPR program Voices in the Wind first broadcast “The Christmas Story” written and read by John Henry Faulk. Faulk died in 1990. In 1994, we pulled the tape from our archives and put it on the air at Christmas. You loved his story and his reading of it so much that it has become an annual tradition on our show. So it is our pleasure to continue that tradition today.
I hope that listening to this narrative will become a tradition for me each Christmas. You can find the audio file and more information here. Enjoy.
