So I've had an article published this month by a magazine I've long subscribed to and love.  It's called Touchstone.  Along with a handful of friends, I went to the Touchstone conference last month in Chicago and listened to Carl Trueman and Rod Dreher, among others, speak.

Touchstone has published the article linked to below in the current issue. They accepted it almost a year ago, but it was too late for last year's Christmas edition so they saved it until now. I've apparently got another article coming out in a future edition since they tell me they intend to publish it, but I don't yet know when that one will appear.

This is a reflection on something that happened last Christmas.
