Paul Miller, pastor of Iola's First Assembly of God

Because I’m feeling pulled off course this Christmas season by headlines of impending disasters of one sort or another, I reached out to the Rev. Paul Miller of First Assembly of God Church to help remind me of the reason for the season.

Though I don’t attend Miller’s church, I’ve always appreciated his easy-going manner and his absolute joy in his faith, which I’m sure has been tested over his 44 years.

At Christmas, especially, I’m hit with the yawning divide between families with means and those without, and how difficult it is to bridge the gap. When I see the long line of children waiting to pick out a free gift from Santa’s Toy Shop, I know there are many for whom this will be their only present.
