Listener-submitted questions:
* Why is there so much focus and enthusiasm for a Christmas tree?
* Do you have a favorite Christmas ornament?
* I’ve been seeing ads for Exodus 90 everywhere. Is it a program you have tried? Would you recommend it for all men? What fruit have you seen from it?
* What’s a good New Year’s resolution? What should we start doing or stop doing?
