Saint Nicholas is a great story to share this Christmas! Nicholas was born in Southern Turkey in 280 AD and was a difference maker. Study the historical writings on this man, but I some it all up in this short video. Play it for your kids, or even your staff, just take the info and preach it. The enemy always has a counterfeit, and that’s where Santa Claus came from.
