To bring peace to men on earth.

  1. Egil: that’s quite a line up. I’d like to add an 86 year old troubadour’s holiday greeting to this notable cue. The title is “It’s a Colorado Christmas” and it’s chock full of the many meanings of Christmas, recorded live by the fireside in our humble home here in western Colorado. Blessings to all of holiday cheer and a prayer for peace in the coming new year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TrVi5fbIe0 JRW
