The Faith of St. Nick

As we approach the beginning of the Advent Season, I just finished reading  The Faith of St. Nick: An Advent Devotional by Ann Nichols.   Ann is a fellow blogger whose unusual and always interesting blog ( focuses on the history of St. Nicholas (a.k.a.), Santa Claus and the many beautiful Greek Orthodox churches throughout the world dedicated to him. Which brings me back to the his faith.
The day by day  devotional tells the story of   the life and faith of the man who was Nicholas of Myra.  Known and revered thoughout Christianity this  man of great faith this iconic figure became the  role model for Santa Claus.   Each days topic includes scripture, history of the saints life and devotions. It is readable for children and would be especially great for parents to read to or with their children.  Think Christmas gifts as Mrs. T and I did....
