Our editors and staff take leave between Christmas and New Year's Day.
“May the father of all mercies scatter light, and not darkness, upon our paths, and make us in all our several vocations useful here, and in His own due time and way everlastingly happy.” —George Washington (1790)
At the end of each year, I request that our editors and staff take leave between Christmas and New Year’s Day in order to be with their families. However, we always have a “duty officer” rotation keeping watch, so headlines and columns will be maintained daily. Yet it is important for our team members to step back from the rigors of our relentless deadlines (as we do on Sundays) so that we enter the new year revitalized and ready to charge.
In keeping with this blessed Christmas season, I invite you to visit our Patriot Christmas page, which provides some insight on the history and current context for the celebration of Christmas.
I ask your prayers for our Patriot team, that our mission would seed and encourage the spirit of Liberty in the hearts and minds of our countrymen. Join us in praying for our Creator’s blessing upon our nation, and especially for the protection of, and provision for, our military Patriots and their families.
