The Rev. Sid Burgess is pastor of Edgewood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, AL.

Some 'old timers' still remember Rev. Burgess from his time as a local TV announcer. He likes to tell about the time a woman asked him, "Didn't you used to be Sid Burgess?" Fact is, the "old" Sid Burgess is a veteran of 20 years of radio, TV, and cable TV in the Birmingham area.

But in 1986, he began a spiritual pilgrimage that ultimately led him to reclaim the sacred calling of his youth: the ministry of Word and sacrament. Sid continued his sojourn at the Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA, where he graduated with a Master of Divinity degree in 1990.

He was called as pastor of Edgewood Presbyterian Church on November 1, 1990.

Buckle your seat belts and come with me for a short, imaginary ride down the Christmas Highway! It may seem a bit early but surely not for the retailers. On radio and television and print ads and store displays, the merchants of America have been steering us in this direction for some weeks now. It is a civic duty, or so it would appear, for all good citizens to be on this great highway to the holiday!
