  • - [Announcer] The following program is sponsored by CBN.
  • 00:00:01.140 --> 00:00:04.270
  • - [Gordon] Coming up...
  • 00:00:06.190 --> 00:00:08.170
  • - Owen started throwing up in the back of my truck.
  • 00:00:08.170 --> 00:00:10.170
  • - [Gordon] Their son was crashing.
  • 00:00:10.170 --> 00:00:12.160
  • - I looked up at the monitor and there was
  • 00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:14.280
  • just a flat line.
  • 00:00:14.280 --> 00:00:16.120
  • - [Gordon] And no one could stop it.
  • 00:00:16.120 --> 00:00:18.070
  • - I know you guys did everything you guys could.
  • 00:00:18.070 --> 00:00:20.130
  • - [Gordon] How did this boy survive?
  • 00:00:20.130 --> 00:00:22.140
  • - [Dr. Mery] He was basically dead
  • 00:00:22.140 --> 00:00:25.200
  • for 90 minutes.
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:27.000
  • - [Gordon] Stay tuned for a Christmas miracle.
  • 00:00:27.000 --> 00:00:29.130
  • - Those were the best text messages I've ever received.
  • 00:00:29.130 --> 00:00:32.140
  • - On today's 700 Club.
  • 00:00:32.140 --> 00:00:35.000
  • (light music)
  • 00:00:35.000 --> 00:00:37.150
  • Well, welcome to this Christmas Eve edition
  • 00:00:42.020 --> 00:00:44.170
  • of The 700 Club.
  • 00:00:44.170 --> 00:00:46.070
  • This year the Coulter family
  • 00:00:46.070 --> 00:00:47.210
  • has an extra reason to celebrate.
  • 00:00:47.210 --> 00:00:49.270
  • That's because one year ago today,
  • 00:00:49.270 --> 00:00:52.050
  • they witnessed a Christmas miracle firsthand.
  • 00:00:52.050 --> 00:00:55.200
  • - Two weeks before Christmas,
  • 00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:57.000
  • their five-year-old son was rushed to the ER.
  • 00:00:57.000 --> 00:01:00.020
  • Soon he was placed on life support.
  • 00:01:00.020 --> 00:01:02.190
  • His parents prepared for the worst.
  • 00:01:02.190 --> 00:01:04.260
  • Instead, they received the best Christmas gift ever.
  • 00:01:04.260 --> 00:01:09.070
  • (bells ringing)
  • 00:01:11.010 --> 00:01:14.000
  • - [Kristin] It's gonna be okay, sweetie.
  • 00:01:14.000 --> 00:01:14.290
  • (indistinct talking)
  • 00:01:14.290 --> 00:01:17.090
  • (bells ringing)
  • 00:01:17.090 --> 00:01:19.260
  • (indistinct voices)
  • 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:22.200
  • (bells ringing)
  • 00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:25.100
  • - [Kristin] Owen, stay with me, no
  • 00:01:25.100 --> 00:01:29.070
  • Oh my God, Owen.
  • 00:01:30.120 --> 00:01:31.210
  • (monitor beeping steadily)
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:33.190
  • Owen, Owen.
  • 00:01:33.190 --> 00:01:36.040
  • - Our son Owen wasn't feeling good,
  • 00:01:38.120 --> 00:01:40.230
  • and when I touched him he was ice cold.
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:44.000
  • We were like should we got to the ER now or wait?
  • 00:01:44.000 --> 00:01:47.050
  • - He also turned pale white.
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:49.260
  • We noticed his ankles were turning slightly purplish,
  • 00:01:49.260 --> 00:01:53.050
  • and at that time Darin and I just sort of
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:55.100
  • looked at each other and we said let's go.
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:57.120
  • - As we were driving, Owen started throwing up
  • 00:01:59.010 --> 00:02:01.050
  • in the back of my truck.
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:03.000
  • And the prayer started, you know,
  • 00:02:03.000 --> 00:02:04.280
  • just praying that everything was gonna be okay.
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:07.290
  • - I had suspicions that obviously this was
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:10.250
  • more serious than your typical flu.
  • 00:02:10.250 --> 00:02:13.020
  • I had no idea that it would turn into
  • 00:02:13.020 --> 00:02:16.230
  • the next most traumatic 24 hours of our life.
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:19.140
  • - We get into the ER, we were there maybe 10 minutes,
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:26.130
  • and then he said Dad, I gotta go to the bathroom.
  • 00:02:26.130 --> 00:02:29.020
  • - He said it again, Mommy, I have to go to the bathroom.
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:33.240
  • (solemn music)
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:36.110
  • At that time we looked up at the monitor
  • 00:02:38.100 --> 00:02:41.000
  • and there was just a flat line.
  • 00:02:41.000 --> 00:02:43.010
  • Everything stopped, I didn't hear anything,
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:48.070
  • I didn't see anything.
  • 00:02:48.070 --> 00:02:49.060
  • I almost felt like I went numb.
  • 00:02:49.060 --> 00:02:51.160
  • (monitor beeping steadily)
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:53.160
  • - Then he would get a heartbeat back,
  • 00:02:53.160 --> 00:02:54.280
  • and we'd see it on there, you know,
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:56.130
  • strong and regular, and then it would just be like
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:58.060
  • boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:59.140
  • and back to CPR again.
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:01.070
  • - I fell to my knees, and I completely surrendered,
  • 00:03:03.040 --> 00:03:06.180
  • and I began to pray.
  • 00:03:06.180 --> 00:03:10.110
  • - 45 minutes went by, then 59 minutes.
  • 00:03:11.160 --> 00:03:14.260
  • The doctor's with me and he goes, you know,
  • 00:03:14.260 --> 00:03:17.290
  • and I go man, I know, I know.
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:19.290
  • You guys did everything you guys could.
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:21.270
  • - At that point, we have one
  • 00:03:24.020 --> 00:03:27.170
  • last sort of ditch effort.
  • 00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:29.120
  • Another physician joins the care team
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:32.140
  • and he suggests this life support machine called an ECMO.
  • 00:03:32.140 --> 00:03:35.280
  • - Essentially it's doing the functions
  • 00:03:37.030 --> 00:03:38.180
  • of the heart and the lungs,
  • 00:03:38.180 --> 00:03:40.210
  • so that allows to stabilize the body
  • 00:03:40.210 --> 00:03:42.260
  • and lets the heart rest.
  • 00:03:42.260 --> 00:03:44.040
  • We put in a cannula, a tube in the artery
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:47.000
  • and on the vein.
  • 00:03:47.000 --> 00:03:49.020
  • - We're already at an hour of CPR,
  • 00:03:49.020 --> 00:03:51.130
  • and then 30 more minutes of CPR
  • 00:03:51.130 --> 00:03:54.240
  • to get the ECMO put on.
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:56.090
  • - After the surgery had been completed,
  • 00:03:57.260 --> 00:04:00.210
  • the diagnosis is
  • 00:04:00.210 --> 00:04:02.080
  • myocarditis, which is a type of virus
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:07.260
  • that basically attacked his muscular system
  • 00:04:07.260 --> 00:04:10.130
  • and attacked his heart.
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:11.200
  • - He's stable at the moment,
  • 00:04:11.200 --> 00:04:13.270
  • but we don't know what kind of damage he has.
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:16.090
  • Everything has basically failed.
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:18.130
  • He's on a ventilator,
  • 00:04:18.130 --> 00:04:20.170
  • his kidneys have failed.
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:22.110
  • His heart is pumping, but very minimal.
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:26.150
  • - Our main concern, because of the length of CPR
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:29.090
  • was that he would have a massive stroke.
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:31.180
  • Within five minutes the brain cells will start dying.
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:35.190
  • - The doctors were just saying, you know,
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:38.100
  • after 90 minutes of CPR, we've seen
  • 00:04:38.100 --> 00:04:41.160
  • a spectrum of he's a vegetable or you know,
  • 00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:46.090
  • there'll be some deficits.
  • 00:04:46.090 --> 00:04:48.040
  • So what version of our son are we gonna have?
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:51.090
  • - We were really, really intentional from day one
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:54.120
  • that we were going to rally
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:57.160
  • as many people as we could to pray for Owen,
  • 00:04:57.160 --> 00:05:01.240
  • and pray for the physicians and the care team at Dell.
  • 00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:04.260
  • - By day five, took him off the ECMO machine,
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:10.230
  • he was stable, his heart was pumping
  • 00:05:12.100 --> 00:05:14.250
  • as best as it could.
  • 00:05:14.250 --> 00:05:16.170
  • If God got us through this right here,
  • 00:05:16.170 --> 00:05:19.000
  • we're praying for 100% that he's gonna
  • 00:05:19.000 --> 00:05:20.210
  • walk out of this hospital.
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:22.000
  • And they said you know what?
  • 00:05:23.100 --> 00:05:25.020
  • Let's see what he does without the ventilator.
  • 00:05:25.020 --> 00:05:27.110
  • (solemn music)
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:30.110
  • - Darin stayed in the room with Owen,
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:33.120
  • and I went down to the healing garden to pray.
  • 00:05:33.120 --> 00:05:37.100
  • And Darin said...
  • 00:05:39.230 --> 00:05:41.050
  • (sobbing)
  • 00:05:42.080 --> 00:05:44.020
  • (solemn music)
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:46.190
  • He's asking for you, Kristin.
  • 00:05:46.190 --> 00:05:48.120
  • He's breathing on his own and he's asking for Mommy
  • 00:05:49.260 --> 00:05:51.230
  • right now.
  • 00:05:51.230 --> 00:05:52.180
  • Those were the best text messages I've ever received.
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:56.160
  • - To know that he recognized us
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:06:00.200
  • was such a huge win.
  • 00:06:00.200 --> 00:06:02.110
  • We both broke down in tears of joy.
  • 00:06:02.110 --> 00:06:05.110
  • He's gonna be good, you know?
  • 00:06:05.110 --> 00:06:09.060
  • (light music)
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:12.140
  • - Our five-year-old Owen walked out
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:14.180
  • fully healed February 7th.
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:17.050
  • God answered our prayers, he did.
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:19.100
  • - That he was basically dead
  • 00:06:19.100 --> 00:06:22.250
  • for 90 minutes and that he was able to recover
  • 00:06:22.250 --> 00:06:26.090
  • to the extent that he recovered,
  • 00:06:26.090 --> 00:06:28.000
  • he's basically a normal child,
  • 00:06:28.000 --> 00:06:30.010
  • I think that's amazing.
  • 00:06:30.010 --> 00:06:31.050
  • - My heart is strong.
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:33.190
  • Jesus saved me.
  • 00:06:33.190 --> 00:06:35.060
  • - Every day is a day of praise, you know,
  • 00:06:35.060 --> 00:06:38.110
  • that the Lord has given us a miracle.
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:42.080
  • Like man, we got our Owen back.
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:44.010
  • - Oh, I love that one.
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:46.210
  • Yeah, you got one, I love that one.
  • 00:06:46.210 --> 00:06:48.110
  • When I prayed to the Lord that day,
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:50.170
  • please give me my Owen,
  • 00:06:50.170 --> 00:06:51.220
  • he gave me Owen and more.
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:54.070
  • I am looking forward to a Christmas
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:57.160
  • where we are all together
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:06:59.250
  • being able to not only celebrate Jesus' birth,
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:03.270
  • but being able to celebrate a second chance
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:07.020
  • that Owen has been given and gifted.
  • 00:07:07.020 --> 00:07:08.260
  • - God is the God of second chances,
  • 00:07:10.260 --> 00:07:13.100
  • not just the second chance, but the third chance,
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:15.290
  • the fourth chance, the fifth chance,
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:18.110
  • as many chances as you need.
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:20.220
  • Just take seven times 70.
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:23.020
  • You get that many chances with him.
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:26.010
  • He wants to heal, he wants to restore.
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:29.250
  • He wants to revive.
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:31.260
  • I love to tell people you are never too dead
  • 00:07:31.260 --> 00:07:35.260
  • for a resurrection, and here, Owen, he is dead,
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:40.010
  • doctors saying for 90 minutes of CPR.
  • 00:07:40.010 --> 00:07:43.290
  • Should there have been a stroke?
  • 00:07:43.290 --> 00:07:45.110
  • Medically that's what the doctor said,
  • 00:07:45.110 --> 00:07:47.200
  • and that's what they were worried about.
  • 00:07:47.200 --> 00:07:50.140
  • Did he need doctors?
  • 00:07:50.140 --> 00:07:51.190
  • Yes, but God answered prayer,
  • 00:07:51.190 --> 00:07:54.260
  • and he will answer prayer for you.
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:57.180
  • If you need a Christmas miracle,
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:07:59.150
  • realize that this is what Jesus came for.
  • 00:07:59.150 --> 00:08:02.290
  • This is why we celebrate the mass of Christ,
  • 00:08:02.290 --> 00:08:06.290
  • to recognize that God came from eternity,
  • 00:08:06.290 --> 00:08:10.190
  • and he was born in a manger,
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:13.070
  • and from that manger he grew into a wonderful ministry
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:17.210
  • that for three years he healed the sick,
  • 00:08:17.210 --> 00:08:20.260
  • he cast out demons, he forgave sins,
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:24.070
  • and then he went to the cross.
  • 00:08:24.070 --> 00:08:26.230
  • The one who lived a sinless life
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:29.050
  • said I will go and sacrifice
  • 00:08:29.050 --> 00:08:32.130
  • so that no one else would have to pay the penalty for sin.
  • 00:08:32.130 --> 00:08:35.290
  • I'll do it, I'll take all on me,

  • That's right, I've counted 783 biblical references to money,

  • yet very few understand just how un-biblical
  • 00:18:12.280 --> 00:18:15.190
  • America's money system is.
  • 00:18:15.190 --> 00:18:17.190
  • In today's debt-driven world, it's very vital
  • 00:18:17.190 --> 00:18:20.070
  • that Christians understand scriptural economic principles
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:24.010
  • to be good stewards with our savings.
  • 00:18:24.010 --> 00:18:26.260
  • Just because our money says In God We Trust,
  • 00:18:26.260 --> 00:18:29.050
  • does not make the money trustworthy.
  • 00:18:29.050 --> 00:18:32.120
  • For over 35 years, my friends at Swiss America
  • 00:18:32.120 --> 00:18:35.060

  • - God bless us everyone.
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:41.110
  • - The interesting thing is that on the surface
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:43.080
  • it's all fun and roaring fires,
  • 00:20:43.080 --> 00:20:45.040
  • and of course, chestnuts and snow,
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:47.260
  • and dancers and blind man's bluff,
  • 00:20:47.260 --> 00:20:49.120
  • but the genius of Dickens is that he transcends all that
  • 00:20:49.120 --> 00:20:52.180
  • and it's really about being a human being
  • 00:20:52.180 --> 00:20:54.120
  • and finding out what it is to be a human being,
  • 00:20:54.120 --> 00:20:56.220
  • and how you can share the world a little bit,
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:59.020
  • and I think that's why it resonates.
  • 00:20:59.020 --> 00:21:01.160

  • 00:21:01.160 --> 00:21:03.180

  • 00:21:23.260 --> 00:21:25.220
  • in terms of how you wanted it told?
  • 00:21:25.220 --> 00:21:26.170
  • - Yeah, absolutely.
  • 00:21:26.170 --> 00:21:27.250
  • I mean, it is an adventure story.
  • 00:21:27.250 --> 00:21:29.170

  • and it's just it was the first time it was ever done.
  • 00:21:39.270 --> 00:21:42.060
  • 1843, I mean, no one had done it before.
  • 00:21:42.060 --> 00:21:45.020
  • Even The Time Machine hadn't been written by H.G. Wells.
  • 00:21:45.020 --> 00:21:47.040
  • No one had even had that, and so for me
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:49.130
  • it's a great, rollicking adventure.
  • 00:21:49.130 --> 00:21:52.020
  • It always has been.
  • 00:21:52.020 --> 00:21:53.090

  • - You jump out and create a distraction.
  • 00:22:33.200 --> 00:22:35.120
  • - Hey. - It's a story we've heard
  • 00:22:35.120 --> 00:22:36.210

  • making a movie about this at all,

  • You know, I grew up with the nativity story,

  • to teach children the stories of the Bible,
  • 00:25:21.230 --> 00:25:24.070
  • and Vickie is quick to admit
  • 00:25:24.070 --> 00:25:25.230
  • that she's learned a lot from Superbook too.
  • 00:25:25.230 --> 00:25:28.070
  • - [Reporter] Meet Ellorie.
  • 00:25:30.230 --> 00:25:32.070
  • She's the pride and joy of her great-grandmother, Vickie.
  • 00:25:32.070 --> 00:25:35.000
  • One of their favorite things to do together
  • 00:25:35.000 --> 00:25:36.220
  • is watch the latest Superbook.
  • 00:25:36.220 --> 00:25:38.170
  • - We're always challenged to try and find
  • 00:25:38.170 --> 00:25:41.050
  • a new Superbook episode, that's our big thing,
  • 00:25:41.050 --> 00:25:43.240
  • because she's fascinated, she wants more and more.
  • 00:25:43.240 --> 00:25:46.160
  • It gives these kids a hunger.
  • 00:25:46.160 --> 00:25:48.210
  • - [Reporter] One of their favorite episodes,
  • 00:25:48.210 --> 00:25:50.100
  • the story of Jonah.
  • 00:25:50.100 --> 00:25:51.280
  • - Jonah didn't go to Nineveh,
  • 00:25:51.280 --> 00:25:56.130
  • and then him got swallowed by a fish,
  • 00:25:56.130 --> 00:25:58.260
  • and it was a whale, and him was very bad.
  • 00:25:58.260 --> 00:26:01.220
  • - [Reporter] Vickie loves that Superbook is teaching Ellorie
  • 00:26:03.080 --> 00:26:05.120
  • the stories of the Bible in a fun, new way.
  • 00:26:05.120 --> 00:26:08.080
  • - And I make sure that she understands this is the Bible.
  • 00:26:08.080 --> 00:26:11.160
  • These are real stories from the Bible,
  • 00:26:11.160 --> 00:26:13.110
  • and they can learn the story exactly as the Bible tells it,
  • 00:26:13.110 --> 00:26:16.090
  • and I think that's what the most profound thing is
  • 00:26:16.090 --> 00:26:19.060
  • about Superbook.
  • 00:26:19.060 --> 00:26:20.270

  • 00:26:20.270 --> 00:26:23.130
  • which brings it down to their level,
  • 00:26:23.130 --> 00:26:25.030
  • where they know it pertains to their own life.
  • 00:26:25.030 --> 00:26:28.080
  • I want to make sure at the end what the lesson was learned,
  • 00:26:28.080 --> 00:26:31.120
  • whether it's forgiveness or you know,
  • 00:26:31.120 --> 00:26:34.100
  • that Goliath is bad and David is good.
  • 00:26:34.100 --> 00:26:37.050
  • He was brave, so you need to be brave,
  • 00:26:37.050 --> 00:26:40.240
  • and she's learned a lot,
  • 00:26:40.240 --> 00:26:43.000
  • and I've learned a lot.
  • 00:26:43.000 --> 00:26:44.050
  • It's not just for kids.
  • 00:26:44.050 --> 00:26:45.180
  • - [Reporter] Now, Ellorie is taking
  • 00:26:46.240 --> 00:26:48.010
  • what she's learned from Superbook,
  • 00:26:48.010 --> 00:26:49.080

  • from the Gospel of Luke,

  • 00:40:50.250 --> 00:40:53.260
  • So funny, we make homemade pizza
  • 00:40:53.260 --> 00:40:56.000
  • on Christmas Eve. - Really?
  • 00:40:56.000 --> 00:40:57.040
  • - Which is not very Christmasy.
  • 00:40:57.040 --> 00:40:58.120
  • - That's a choice. - But our family has
  • 00:40:58.120 --> 00:40:59.260
  • gotten into this, we all bring the ingredients we like,
  • 00:40:59.260 --> 00:41:02.190
  • and we've been doing this for years and years,

  • - Well, that's kind of what the holiday
  • 00:41:14.020 --> 00:41:15.270
  • is supposed to be about, though,
  • 00:41:15.270 --> 00:41:17.040

  • - Well, obviously we have the friends and the family,
  • 00:41:23.020 --> 00:41:26.240
  • and the relationships that you don't always
  • 00:41:26.240 --> 00:41:28.210
  • get the opportunity to see everyone,
  • 00:41:28.210 --> 00:41:30.170

  • with nieces and nephews, and in-laws,
  • 00:41:32.110 --> 00:41:33.270
  • and parents, and grandparents, and all of that,
  • 00:41:33.270 --> 00:41:35.270
  • and then of course, it is so meaningful because of Jesus.
  • 00:41:35.270 --> 00:41:40.000
  • I mean, really, it does give us a time
  • 00:41:40.000 --> 00:41:42.160
  • in the year to pause for awhile now, especially,
  • 00:41:42.160 --> 00:41:46.050
  • at least a month, and really think about
  • 00:41:46.050 --> 00:41:48.050

  • Do you have a favorite?
  • 00:42:06.000 --> 00:42:07.040
  • - I love the sun-dried tomato pasta.
  • 00:42:07.040 --> 00:42:09.140
  • It is just so easy, it's only seven ingredients,
  • 00:42:09.140 --> 00:42:11.290
  • some sun-dried tomatoes, some feta, pine nuts, black olives.
  • 00:42:11.290 --> 00:42:15.010
  • It's not difficult, but it's really good
  • 00:42:15.010 --> 00:42:17.080
  • and it's colorful, and I love pasta,
  • 00:42:17.080 --> 00:42:19.040
  • and I know that carbs are just getting a bad rap right now,
  • 00:42:19.040 --> 00:42:22.080
  • but in moderation, I love the Bolognese sauce
  • 00:42:22.080 --> 00:42:25.150
  • that we have in there too,
  • 00:42:25.150 --> 00:42:26.150
  • so it's just comforting to me,
  • 00:42:26.150 --> 00:42:28.210
  • and it's not too difficult to put together.
  • 00:42:28.210 --> 00:42:30.060
  • - And they are as festive as--
  • 00:42:30.060 --> 00:42:31.280
  • It's like a food celebration, your pictures show that
  • 00:42:31.280 --> 00:42:34.190
  • in the cookbook. - Yes.
  • 00:42:34.190 --> 00:42:35.170

  • what we're preparing here today.
  • 00:42:37.140 --> 00:42:38.270
  • What is this called? - Yeah, this is the
  • 00:42:38.270 --> 00:42:41.000
  • butternut squash and sausage risotto.
  • 00:42:41.000 --> 00:42:43.080
  • - I love butternut squash. - Oh, me too.

  • - And now they even chop it for you
  • 00:42:46.000 --> 00:42:47.050
  • in the grocery store. - I know, right?
  • 00:42:47.050 --> 00:42:48.120
  • I'm like could it get any better?
  • 00:42:48.120 --> 00:42:49.260
  • - Exactly, which you bring up a great point here
  • 00:42:49.260 --> 00:42:52.270
  • because the risotto, we'll talk about
  • 00:42:52.270 --> 00:42:55.010
  • the risotto part in a second
  • 00:42:55.010 --> 00:42:56.080
  • because it takes a little bit of focus,
  • 00:42:56.080 --> 00:42:58.070
  • so what I like to do is get my--
  • 00:42:58.070 --> 00:43:00.030
  • Fry my sausage and get my butternut squash roasted
  • 00:43:00.030 --> 00:43:03.130
  • out of the way. - And you drain this
  • 00:43:03.130 --> 00:43:04.210
  • after you've fried it? - Yeah, I mean, you can
  • 00:43:04.210 --> 00:43:06.220
  • drain it a little bit, but the fat makes
  • 00:43:06.220 --> 00:43:09.010
  • the risotto taste really good,
  • 00:43:09.010 --> 00:43:10.160
  • so you can drain it, yes,
  • 00:43:10.160 --> 00:43:12.030
  • but I like to leave a decent amount in there,
  • 00:43:12.030 --> 00:43:14.210
  • so you just kinda, obviously you're gonna
  • 00:43:14.210 --> 00:43:16.060
  • fry your sausage up.
  • 00:43:16.060 --> 00:43:17.170
  • When you get that, I set that aside,
  • 00:43:17.170 --> 00:43:20.010
  • and then the butternut squash,
  • 00:43:20.010 --> 00:43:21.090
  • you can buy it cubed, you're right.
  • 00:43:21.090 --> 00:43:23.270
  • The butternut squash used to intimidate me,
  • 00:43:23.270 --> 00:43:25.260
  • but I didn't realize you could just take
  • 00:43:25.260 --> 00:43:27.220
  • a little peeler and it's not very difficult,
  • 00:43:27.220 --> 00:43:30.120
  • and you can chop it up.
  • 00:43:30.120 --> 00:43:31.210
  • You put that in the oven,
  • 00:43:31.210 --> 00:43:33.170
  • just kinda toss it in olive oil, salt and pepper,
  • 00:43:33.170 --> 00:43:36.010
  • put it in the oven, roast it for about,
  • 00:43:36.010 --> 00:43:37.080
  • at 425 or something, for about 20, 25 minutes.
  • 00:43:37.080 --> 00:43:40.150
  • Maybe you toss it in the middle
  • 00:43:40.150 --> 00:43:41.220
  • just to make sure it doesn't burn,
  • 00:43:41.220 --> 00:43:42.290
  • and then I do exactly that, I set that aside.
  • 00:43:42.290 --> 00:43:46.000
  • And then you've got the risotto,
  • 00:43:46.000 --> 00:43:47.100
  • and people can get intimidated by risotto
  • 00:43:47.100 --> 00:43:49.120
  • because you have to saute the onion in the butter,
  • 00:43:49.120 --> 00:43:52.160
  • add the rice, kinda toss it,
  • 00:43:52.160 --> 00:43:54.000
  • and then you have to just take one cup of broth at a time
  • 00:43:54.000 --> 00:43:56.080
  • and you have to continually stir it
  • 00:43:56.080 --> 00:43:58.150
  • until it absorbs that broth.
  • 00:43:58.150 --> 00:44:00.040
  • Then you take another-- - How many cups
  • 00:44:00.040 --> 00:44:02.000
  • are you putting in? - Five cups.
  • 00:44:02.000 --> 00:44:03.090
  • - Five cups? - So it takes about
  • 00:44:03.090 --> 00:44:05.090
  • 20 minutes, so this is not the time to text people.
  • 00:44:05.090 --> 00:44:08.090
  • So I had a friend come over the other day
  • 00:44:09.240 --> 00:44:11.100
  • and I said listen, I'm in the middle of the risotto,
  • 00:44:11.100 --> 00:44:12.270
  • just don't talk to me, and it's not hard,
  • 00:44:12.270 --> 00:44:15.090
  • but you just don't want to get distracted.
  • 00:44:15.090 --> 00:44:16.230
  • - Three cups to go, right? - Yes, and it'll burn,
  • 00:44:16.230 --> 00:44:18.220
  • but it's nice and therapeutic.
  • 00:44:18.220 --> 00:44:19.290
  • You literally just are doing this,
  • 00:44:19.290 --> 00:44:21.200
  • and as soon as it absorbs everything
  • 00:44:21.200 --> 00:44:23.060
  • and you feel good about it, then what we're gonna do
  • 00:44:23.060 --> 00:44:25.290
  • is we're going to just add the sausage here to the risotto,
  • 00:44:25.290 --> 00:44:30.220
  • and then the butternut squash,
  • 00:44:30.220 --> 00:44:34.060
  • and then you know--
  • 00:44:34.060 --> 00:44:36.230
  • Let's see here, it's not gonna go, yeah.
  • 00:44:36.230 --> 00:44:39.100
  • And then the Parmesan, we have a whole
  • 00:44:39.100 --> 00:44:41.010
  • beautiful thing of Parmesan, and you can
  • 00:44:41.010 --> 00:44:42.080
  • just dump that all in there. - Really?
  • 00:44:42.080 --> 00:44:43.240
  • The whole thing? - Yeah, just dump
  • 00:44:43.240 --> 00:44:45.060
  • the whole thing in there, I think it's about
  • 00:44:45.060 --> 00:44:46.110
  • half a cup. - Everything in me
  • 00:44:46.110 --> 00:44:47.100
  • says stop. - Says stop?
  • 00:44:47.100 --> 00:44:48.170
  • But Parmesan's a hard cheese, so you're okay.
  • 00:44:48.170 --> 00:44:51.060
  • It's not too bad for you.
  • 00:44:51.060 --> 00:44:52.280
  • I try not to completely... - Ooh, does that smell good.
  • 00:44:52.280 --> 00:44:54.140
  • ruin the butternut squash.
  • 00:44:54.140 --> 00:44:56.010
  • I try not to completely smash it.
  • 00:44:56.010 --> 00:44:58.040
  • And then you just-- - Also, I think it
  • 00:44:58.040 --> 00:45:00.210
  • probably blends in there pretty quickly.
  • 00:45:00.210 --> 00:45:02.070
  • - Yes, yes. - 15 second rule
  • 00:45:02.070 --> 00:45:04.080
  • at our house. - There you go, there you go,
  • 00:45:04.080 --> 00:45:05.190
  • so you just get that nicely mixed.
  • 00:45:05.190 --> 00:45:07.190
  • - And then this is what you wind up with.
  • 00:45:07.190 --> 00:45:09.220
  • It's beautiful. - And then you can
  • 00:45:09.220 --> 00:45:10.290
  • set it aside, and it's just great,
  • 00:45:10.290 --> 00:45:11.280
  • and I like this too because
  • 00:45:11.280 --> 00:45:13.240
  • sometimes after the holidays, you're so full,
  • 00:45:13.240 --> 00:45:16.220
  • and you can just have this by itself,
  • 00:45:16.220 --> 00:45:18.240
  • or if you want to serve it as a side,
  • 00:45:18.240 --> 00:45:21.220
  • you can that as well too.
  • 00:45:21.220 --> 00:45:22.180
  • - Sure. - So it's nice.
  • 00:45:22.180 --> 00:45:24.020
  • - Let's move down here because this is something
  • 00:45:24.020 --> 00:45:25.060
  • I did this year.
  • 00:45:25.060 --> 00:45:26.130
  • When you have so much leftover turkey or ham,
  • 00:45:26.130 --> 00:45:28.110
  • soup is on the menu, right? - Yes, exactly.
  • 00:45:28.110 --> 00:45:30.210
  • - What do you have here?
  • 00:45:30.210 --> 00:45:31.280
  • - So this is, I hate to use the word carcass,
  • 00:45:31.280 --> 00:45:34.030
  • but the turkey bones and the carcass is really
  • 00:45:34.030 --> 00:45:36.230
  • what makes a great broth. - It is the carcass.
  • 00:45:36.230 --> 00:45:38.270
  • - And so this is turkey soup with rice.
  • 00:45:38.270 --> 00:45:41.150
  • Obviously you've got your carrots, celery, onion,
  • 00:45:41.150 --> 00:45:44.250
  • and the leftover turkey. - Beautiful.
  • 00:45:44.250 --> 00:45:47.000
  • - This is great.
  • 00:45:47.000 --> 00:45:47.280
  • I make this every single year,
  • 00:45:47.280 --> 00:45:50.050
  • and especially after the holidays.
  • 00:45:50.050 --> 00:45:51.200
  • It's a way to not lose the extra meat and the bones
  • 00:45:51.200 --> 00:45:54.060
  • make a great broth.
  • 00:45:54.060 --> 00:45:56.040
  • - And then you have what you call Christmas rice.
  • 00:45:56.040 --> 00:45:58.060
  • - Yes, so wonderful for Christmas Day
  • 00:45:58.060 --> 00:46:00.100
  • because it's festive, it's colorful.
  • 00:46:00.100 --> 00:46:02.070
  • You've got dried cranberries, dried apricots.
  • 00:46:02.070 --> 00:46:04.190
  • It just kinda makes a nice spin on rice.
  • 00:46:04.190 --> 00:46:06.130
  • - Yes. - And then after the holidays
  • 00:46:06.130 --> 00:46:08.210
  • all of us probably will have extra rice around,
  • 00:46:08.210 --> 00:46:11.000
  • and it's just nice to put something special together.
  • 00:46:11.000 --> 00:46:14.150
  • - A way to utilize it, sure.
  • 00:46:14.150 --> 00:46:15.280
  • And this is so beautiful, a charcuterie board.
  • 00:46:15.280 --> 00:46:18.230
  • - Yes. - Yes, but you have--
  • 00:46:18.230 --> 00:46:20.160
  • I mean, I tried this once.
  • 00:46:20.160 --> 00:46:22.030
  • It didn't look like this.
  • 00:46:22.030 --> 00:46:24.000
  • Tell me the secret to doing this correctly.
  • 00:46:25.060 --> 00:46:27.050
  • - Well, to me, I use, again, after the holidays,
  • 00:46:27.050 --> 00:46:31.020
  • if you have cheeses or you have a pear,
  • 00:46:31.020 --> 00:46:33.070
  • or an apple, or grapes or something,
  • 00:46:33.070 --> 00:46:34.210
  • you can put all this together.
  • 00:46:34.210 --> 00:46:36.050
  • If I'm doing it from scratch,
  • 00:46:36.050 --> 00:46:38.060
  • again it's all about layering,
  • 00:46:38.060 --> 00:46:39.220
  • so you might have some height here,
  • 00:46:39.220 --> 00:46:41.210
  • you can spread your crackers around,
  • 00:46:41.210 --> 00:46:44.010
  • a few little ramekins or something for the dipping,
  • 00:46:44.010 --> 00:46:47.290
  • and really there's no wrong way to do it.
  • 00:46:47.290 --> 00:46:49.260
  • It is nice to have a nice big--
  • 00:46:49.260 --> 00:46:51.090
  • It doesn't even have to be this big.
  • 00:46:51.090 --> 00:46:52.210
  • - Start with it, yeah. - But a nice big wooden board,
  • 00:46:52.210 --> 00:46:54.100
  • and just create. - These cute little apples.
  • 00:46:54.100 --> 00:46:56.240
  • - I know. - I mean, how wonderful
  • 00:46:56.240 --> 00:46:58.050
  • is that? - I know, it's beautiful,
  • 00:46:58.050 --> 00:46:59.200
  • but I love this because it's great for the day of,
  • 00:46:59.200 --> 00:47:02.250
  • or if you have leftovers. - Yes.
  • 00:47:02.250 --> 00:47:04.200
  • Beautiful, beautiful display.
  • 00:47:04.200 --> 00:47:06.110
  • I want to mention, you can get the recipes
  • 00:47:06.110 --> 00:47:08.150
  • for everything that you've seen today
  • 00:47:08.150 --> 00:47:10.080
  • and that we've talked about by getting Kelly's cookbook.
  • 00:47:10.080 --> 00:47:12.270
  • It's called A Place at the Table,
  • 00:47:12.270 --> 00:47:15.130
  • beautiful pictures, wonderful copy inside,
  • 00:47:15.130 --> 00:47:18.020
  • and it's available wherever books are sold.
  • 00:47:18.020 --> 00:47:19.290
  • So if you missed getting it for Christmas,
  • 00:47:19.290 --> 00:47:21.240
  • there's always New Year, right?
  • 00:47:21.240 --> 00:47:23.070
  • - There we go. - Thank you.
  • 00:47:23.070 --> 00:47:24.160
  • It was wonderful to have you here.
  • 00:47:24.160 --> 00:47:25.260
  • - Thank you so much, Terry. - I love it all.
  • 00:47:25.260 --> 00:47:27.100
  • Well, still ahead, what really happened
  • 00:47:27.100 --> 00:47:29.180
  • in that stable the night that Jesus was born.
  • 00:47:29.180 --> 00:47:32.120
  • Author Ace Collins separates the fact from the fiction
  • 00:47:32.120 --> 00:47:35.260
  • of the Nativity scene.
  • 00:47:35.260 --> 00:47:37.150
  • (light Christmas music)
  • 00:47:37.150 --> 00:47:40.250
  • Joy to the world, the Lord is come
  • 00:47:53.040 --> 00:47:57.130
  • Let Earth--
  • 00:47:57.130 --> 00:47:58.180
  • - [Gordon] While most Christmas carols
  • 00:47:58.180 --> 00:48:00.040
  • focus on the story of the Nativity in the past,
  • 00:48:00.040 --> 00:48:03.180
  • one well-known hymn encourages Christians
  • 00:48:03.180 --> 00:48:05.290
  • to look forward to the future.
  • 00:48:05.290 --> 00:48:07.200
  • Let Heaven and nature sing
  • 00:48:07.200 --> 00:48:09.170
  • - There is one Christmas carol
  • 00:48:09.170 --> 00:48:11.160
  • that is unlike all others.
  • 00:48:11.160 --> 00:48:13.220
  • That song, Joy to the World, is not about
  • 00:48:13.220 --> 00:48:16.170
  • the first coming of Jesus.
  • 00:48:16.170 --> 00:48:18.150
  • That hymn is about the second coming of Jesus.
  • 00:48:18.150 --> 00:48:21.250
  • - [Gordon] Joy to the World was originally part
  • 00:48:21.250 --> 00:48:24.080
  • of a book of poems written by the great English hymn writer
  • 00:48:24.080 --> 00:48:27.280
  • Isaac Watts in 1719.
  • 00:48:27.280 --> 00:48:31.080
  • Based on the 98th Psalm, the poem was never intended
  • 00:48:31.080 --> 00:48:35.000
  • to be a Christmas song or any kind of song, for that matter,
  • 00:48:35.000 --> 00:48:38.260
  • and Watts never knew that he had just written
  • 00:48:38.260 --> 00:48:41.270
  • one of his most famous hymns.
  • 00:48:41.270 --> 00:48:43.190
  • A century later, a Boston music teacher named Lowell Mason
  • 00:48:45.030 --> 00:48:48.140
  • discovered the poem and set it to music.
  • 00:48:48.140 --> 00:48:51.230
  • Because it was released at Christmastime,
  • 00:48:51.230 --> 00:48:54.050
  • it quickly became a holiday favorite,
  • 00:48:54.050 --> 00:48:56.290
  • and went on to become the most published Christmas carol
  • 00:48:56.290 --> 00:48:59.260
  • in America.
  • 00:48:59.260 --> 00:49:00.220
  • - Joy to the World, the Lord has come.
  • 00:49:02.290 --> 00:49:05.090
  • Let Earth receive her king.
  • 00:49:05.090 --> 00:49:07.190
  • Let every nation prepare him room,
  • 00:49:07.190 --> 00:49:10.040
  • and Heaven and nature sing.
  • 00:49:10.040 --> 00:49:12.040
  • He rules the world with truth and grace,
  • 00:49:12.040 --> 00:49:15.060
  • and makes the nations prove
  • 00:49:15.060 --> 00:49:17.150
  • the wonders of his majesty.
  • 00:49:17.150 --> 00:49:19.010
  • It's about when he comes again, finally,
  • 00:49:21.030 --> 00:49:23.240
  • and rules in power and justice and mercy.
  • 00:49:23.240 --> 00:49:27.130
  • And wonders of his love
  • 00:49:27.130 --> 00:49:30.280
  • And wonders and wonders
  • 00:49:30.280 --> 00:49:33.240
  • Of his love

  • 00:49:39.030 --> 00:49:43.040
  • - [Announcer] I took a journey around the world,
  • 00:49:43.040 --> 00:49:44.280
  • and I saw great things.
  • 00:49:44.280 --> 00:49:46.200
  • I saw people dancing as cool, clean water
  • 00:49:46.200 --> 00:49:49.060
  • gushed out of the ground.
  • 00:49:49.060 --> 00:49:50.280
  • There were medical supplies and even doctors
  • 00:49:50.280 --> 00:49:53.040
  • healing the sick.
  • 00:49:53.040 --> 00:49:54.210
  • I saw quick relief go out to victims of floods
  • 00:49:54.210 --> 00:49:57.140
  • and hurricanes, but the greatest thing I saw
  • 00:49:57.140 --> 00:50:00.020
  • on my journey were people transformed
  • 00:50:00.020 --> 00:50:02.010
  • from death to life by the gospel of Christ.
  • 00:50:02.010 --> 00:50:04.200
  • Children learned Bible stories,
  • 00:50:04.200 --> 00:50:06.080

  • smiles grow bigger.
  • 00:50:15.220 --> 00:50:17.140
  • When you comfort,
  • 00:50:18.230 --> 00:50:19.190
  • the hurt goes away.
  • 00:50:20.210 --> 00:50:22.040
  • When we all come together to love,

  • and your gift goes to make a world of difference,

  • so if you have appreciated stock,

  • All of it happens this year-end, so do it now.
  • 00:51:42.250 --> 00:51:45.160
  • 1-800-700-7000, Ter?
  • 00:51:45.160 --> 00:51:49.000
  • - Well, no matter the shape, size or form,
  • 00:51:49.000 --> 00:51:51.190
  • most Nativity displays feature the basics,
  • 00:51:51.190 --> 00:51:54.080
  • the wise men, the shepherds, Mary, Joseph,
  • 00:51:54.080 --> 00:51:57.020
  • with baby Jesus resting in a manger.
  • 00:51:57.020 --> 00:51:59.200
  • But how accurate is this depiction?
  • 00:51:59.200 --> 00:52:01.240
  • Wendy Griffith talked with author, Ace Collins,
  • 00:52:01.240 --> 00:52:04.150
  • and found out.
  • 00:52:04.150 --> 00:52:05.130
  • (light music)
  • 00:52:07.050 --> 00:52:09.200
  • - Ace, I just love Nativity scenes,
  • 00:52:11.180 --> 00:52:13.070
  • and this one in front of us reminds me so much
  • 00:52:13.070 --> 00:52:15.130
  • of the one that we had in my house growing up as a child.
  • 00:52:15.130 --> 00:52:18.170
  • When did people start displaying Nativity scenes?
  • 00:52:18.170 --> 00:52:21.160
  • - They probably started making carvings
  • 00:52:21.160 --> 00:52:22.260
  • in the third or fourth century,
  • 00:52:22.260 --> 00:52:24.090
  • but the first Nativity scene that we really look at
  • 00:52:24.090 --> 00:52:26.200
  • as beginning what we look at today
  • 00:52:26.200 --> 00:52:29.040
  • was started by Francis of Assisi about eight centuries ago.
  • 00:52:29.040 --> 00:52:32.130
  • He used them as teaching tools.
  • 00:52:32.130 --> 00:52:34.100
  • As a matter of fact, he incorporated live animals
  • 00:52:34.100 --> 00:52:37.000
  • and actors, and even had songs.
  • 00:52:37.000 --> 00:52:39.040
  • It was part of an hour or two-hour long pageant,
  • 00:52:39.040 --> 00:52:41.220
  • if you will, where he brought the manger scene to life
  • 00:52:41.220 --> 00:52:45.180
  • for the very first time, so people could really understand
  • 00:52:45.180 --> 00:52:49.280
  • what happened on that first Christmas night.
  • 00:52:49.280 --> 00:52:52.130
  • - Now, the night that Jesus was born,
  • 00:52:52.130 --> 00:52:54.190
  • we know he was born in a manger.
  • 00:52:54.190 --> 00:52:56.160
  • How accurate is a Nativity scene like this one?
  • 00:52:56.160 --> 00:53:00.190
  • - We honestly don't know.
  • 00:53:00.190 --> 00:53:01.270
  • We know that there had to be animals
  • 00:53:01.270 --> 00:53:03.150
  • 'cause the city was full, and people brought the animals in.
  • 00:53:03.150 --> 00:53:05.150
  • They were probably inside the stable, not on the outside.
  • 00:53:05.150 --> 00:53:08.130
  • We do know the shepherds arrived.
  • 00:53:08.130 --> 00:53:10.160
  • One of the things that we also know is the magi,
  • 00:53:10.160 --> 00:53:13.270
  • the visitors from the east, the kings,
  • 00:53:13.270 --> 00:53:16.210
  • did not come to the manger, even though we
  • 00:53:16.210 --> 00:53:18.250
  • always see them. - The kings weren't
  • 00:53:18.250 --> 00:53:20.010
  • at the manger? - They came many,
  • 00:53:20.010 --> 00:53:21.210
  • many months later and visited Mary and Joseph in their home
  • 00:53:21.210 --> 00:53:24.290
  • and spent the night with them.
  • 00:53:24.290 --> 00:53:26.120
  • So we know that most of the Nativity scenes
  • 00:53:26.120 --> 00:53:29.040
  • are not accurate, but I don't think that is
  • 00:53:29.040 --> 00:53:31.090
  • as important as it is to realize
  • 00:53:31.090 --> 00:53:34.240
  • that probably more than anything else,
  • 00:53:34.240 --> 00:53:36.220
  • these little Nativity scenes
  • 00:53:36.220 --> 00:53:39.000
  • put the focus back on the reason for the season,
  • 00:53:39.000 --> 00:53:43.060
  • and it really shows us that God came to us
  • 00:53:43.060 --> 00:53:47.000
  • as a common man so that we could all relate to him.
  • 00:53:47.000 --> 00:53:49.170
  • - Well, thank you for watching today's show.
  • 00:53:51.060 --> 00:53:53.090

  • And laid within a manger
  • 00:55:18.040 --> 00:55:20.070
  • This blessed Christmas morn
  • 00:55:20.070 --> 00:55:22.080
  • The which his mother Mary
  • 00:55:22.080 --> 00:55:24.120
