Members of a New York church were surprised to find a newborn baby placed in the congregation's nativity scene.
The baby was found in the manger scene display at the appropriately named Holy Child Jesus Church in Richmond Hill in Queens. A full-term newborn, according to the New York Daily News, was found with the umbilical cord still attached.
Grammy-nominated artist Jeremy Camp has made a name for himself in the Christian music scene with his infectious worship songs and contemporary anthems, but the 37-year-old might have to move over and make way for his young daughters who have now released their first single.
Camp recently received his 38th No. 1 radio single across all radio formats with "Same Power," but the father of 3 may have to hand over his musical crown because his daughters Bella (11) and Aerie (9) have released their debut single. The tune is a Christmas song named "Behold." It was penned by a then 10-year-old Bella.
In a very charming video posted on Vimeo, the audience is given an inside look into the recording of the song in which Camp and his entire family partake in. With Bella and Aerie singing lead, Camp and his wife, Adrienne, are heard and seen singing background vocals. Camp's youngest son Egan was not excluded in the family affair as he had the honor of ending the song by singing the chorus solo. more >>

"This advert is about as offensive as a carol service or church service on Christmas Day," The Most Rev. Justin Welby said, according to BBC News.
"Let the public judge for themselves rather than be censored or dictated to," he added. more >>
It's that time of year again. Time for people to go about stores and malls and shop 'til they drop.
America's love of shopping kicks into high gear during November and December, as Black Friday and holiday sales abound.
This intense shopping season often brings crazed crowds who climb over each other for better and better deals. more >>
A previously obscure online eccentric evangelist has criticized Starbucks' new plain holiday season cups denuded of traditional secular Christmas symbols, like snow flakes, as anti-Christian, igniting lots of media buzz and online chatter.
It's an old storyline. A purported Evangelical ignoramus makes outrageous public claims to universal ridicule, often led by other Evangelicals.
The new cup design, in simple red and green, actually looks pretty tasteful and is still clearly seasonal. Unfortunately, Starbucks reacted to the faux controversy with a hyper politically correct and pompous explanation including these stupefying quotes: more >>
