This year marks the 25th anniversary of Christmas in the Chapel at Lincoln Christian University. Each year the students, staff and volunteers work hard to bring a show to the community that will reflect the spirit of Christmas through the spirit of Christ.

This year's presentation was entitled "The Flim-Flam Christmas Man." 

The show was filled with beautiful music, wonderful sets and best of all, some very entertaining moments as students took the stage in a variety of roles.

Below is a portion of the foreword that was offered in the show program:

Several weeks ago it all began to happen around here again. The lights and decorations were dusted off. The "Rejoice" sign was hung and the white ramp put into place. Jennifer Boeke and Tom Sowers began weaving their magic with paint and power tools, and Adam Johnson arrived to work his annual Christmas miracle with amateur actors. And of course, the familiar refrain of "Good Christian Men, Rejoice" could be heard flowing from the choir room. It would seem that the spirit of Christmas has once again invaded our campus.

We certainly want the spirit of Christmas to be here. We look forward to its arrival. The sights and sounds, images and aromas, packages and parties all tell us the Christmas spirit is upon us. But is it really? Or have we been film-flamed into settling for a cheap imitation? Could it be the familiar trappings of Christmas are nothing more than costumes and props we don every December to conjure up the Christmas spirit? Sometimes it works. But more often than not, all the razzle and dazzle of the Christmas season cannot mask the reality of life, and the spirit we long for eludes us.
