1. The Work of Christmas Begins: Howard Thurman

This is what Christmas was for.

It was for

  • economic justice –
  • proper behavior of and within the legal and criminal justice systems –
  • health care, health ministry –
  • justice for all who are oppressed,

2. Cowboy Christmas Prayer

I ain’t much seen in churches where they preach Thy Holy Word,
But you may have observed me out here on the lonely plains,
A-lookin’ after cattle, feelin’ thankful when it rains,
Admirin’ Thy great handiwork,

3. Christians are Guilty of the REAL War on Christmas

Sadly, maybe if there really is a “war on Christmas” we are the ones doing it, by not living the Reality of God present.

Maybe too often those who claim to love and serve Christ live as if the Reality were not Real.

What if someone gives Christmas less respect than we think it deserves – should we start a quarrel about it?

Hey, people give sunsets and chickadees and 2nd-graders less respect than they deserve. The solution is not that we become touchy, argumentative and warlike. We should become more Christlike.
