For the young at heart rockers out there!

We all know a good story when we hear it – whether in the spoken word or through music. Bringing the two together is really powerful.

For those who are young at heart and those not so young at heart but recognise a good piece of music, this clip combines great music with an even better story for us to cherish and be happy about.

It is a clever but respectful version of the Bethlehem Story.

So as we approach the end of the Christmas season, take 5 minutes and sit back and enjoy… Bethlehemian Rhapsody!

“It’s a Wondrous story, to me!”

A Happy and Peaceful New Year
