“We need a good Christmas this year.” This has become the rallying cry for Jonathan Richard Cring, author and columnist at <www.jonathots.com>, for a program he is offering during this festive holiday season on Friday, Dec. 23, 7 p.m., at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 11295 SW 57 Ave. “There should be one month of the year when politics and arguing stop and we allow the best parts of our childhood traditions to merge with the better parts of our faith to give us a joyful experience,” said Cring from his journeys on the road. Cring and his partner, master musician Janet Clazzy, recently completed a tour of 30 states, 175 cities, with 210 presentations across America.

cooking up some great seasonal tunes — much to everybody’s glee.” Cring concludes, “We understand that people have a lot to do, getting ready for all the fun around the tree. But it wouldn’t hurt to take one hour to come out and give yourself a good one this year — because I surely believe we could use one.” A free-will donation will be collected to defray expenses, and Cring and Clazzy also will offer a reasonable package of Christmas treasures to be enjoyed by the audience — or given as gifts to friends.
