We hope you are enjoying a wonderful Advent season in anticipation of the coming of our Lord and hope you have a blessed 2018. Enjoy this greeting with a short photo overview of our year while Jana (piano) and Elisabeth (violin) play “A Song from Secret Garden.”
We hope you enjoy our Christmas greeting with photo and video flashbacks of our amazing year.
We feel blessed that we got to touch base with more friends and family than in most years, we made many new friends, and we had a ton of adventures.
Thanks for being a part of our lives and our ministry in 2016!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2015!
It’s wonderful to be celebrating another Christmas season and it’s especially nice to look back on memories of visiting with family and friends throughout the year. Who knows what challenges we’ll face in the coming year. May God give you strength for those challenges and may you experience his peace and presence throughout the year.
Todd, Jana, Elisabeth and Max.
Merry Christmas from the Pattersons!

Last year I wrote a sort of poem for our Christmas card. The poem itself was not so great, but it was actually an experiment in mimesis (something I’m still planning on writing more about). Somehow, I ended up writing a poem again for this year’s Christmas card and, like last year, this year’s poem was a bit of an experiment. In this poem I’m trying to blend the influences of the Gospel of Luke, the Gospel of John, Caravaggio, and Hebrew poetry.
