Christianity is a faith with a long and detailed history, with numerous events of lasting significance occurring throughout the ages.

Each week brings the anniversaries of great milestones, horrid tragedies, amazing triumphs, and everything in between.

Here are just a few things that happened this week, Dec. 23-30, in Church history. They include the first performance of “Silent Night,” the birth of a prominent Quaker theologian, and the birth of famed evangelist George Whitefield.
