A Christmas Greeting from the heart!
On behalf of the currently 70,000+ cross.tv members (only 3 months after public launch), we would like to shout a loud "Merry Christmas!" to all of you, from the heart of the cross.tv team. Some of our team members wanted to show their faces and wish you a Merry Christmas personally, so please watch our video greeting and sing along with us to one of the world's most sung Christmas carols "Silent Night", an original greeting from Austria. "Silent Night" was composed by the Highschool Teacher and Organist Franz Xaver Gruber and the Catholic Priest Joseph Mohr in 1818, in Oberndorf, outside of Salzburg. The funny part is, both Gruber and Mohr were nobodies, living in a town of 500 people and all odds were against them, since the town's church organ wasn't working for the debut night. They had to change their composition to make it work for guitar accompaniement - a completely uncommon way of performing music publicly. The debut performance was at Christmas night of 1818 in the town chapel of Oberndorf. Since then the originally German carol ("Stille Nacht") has been translated into over 300 languages and probably been sung millions of times around the world. It could be the most sung Christmas carol of all times.

It reminds me a little of Bethlehem: there would have been hundreds of "better" places, "better" people to give birth to Jesus Christ - the son of God, or wouldn't there have been? Many leaders, rich and famous would have felt much more eloquent to be the vehicle of God's transcendence to earth 2000 years ago: highly developed cultures of Rome, Persia and even the religious elites in Israel. BUT: Mary did YOU know? ...that your baby boy was born to save the world? WHO, yes WHO would imagine a king - in the dirt of the tiniest country side town's manger, with donkeys and cows as the only earthly spectators? (...well, not to forget a few billion of angels and the heavenly father!) But the famous and the wise of their times, once again, were passed by and overruled by the Almighty. Well, that's our God! The respector of heart, not of this world's standards and systems!

In the same spirit of surprisingly impacting inventions, by ordinary and unexpected "nobodies" in the most unexpected, secret places, cross.tv wants to celebrate Christmas with you this year and we want to say thank you for giving us a chance to launch and grow this community! (who would imagine a global CHRISTIAN multi media community out of tiny little countries in Central Europe, with less than 20,000 evangelical Christians?...)

Humbly we continue to serve you with the ideas and talents God has given us to develop this thing and make it an even better tool for you, your family, your church, your organization. We regard it a huge privilege and we want to thank you for your trust, hanging in there with us during the startup phase! (and patiently giving us some extra grace when some things aren't working temporarily on the site...)

In the true spirit of Christmas, rejoycing in our Lord's great salvation plan, participating in the world's greatest annual birthday party - we want to wish you, your family and friends a wonderful and peaceful Christmas! (With lots of unexpected presents of joy, laughter and friendship)
