Merry Christmas 2008

The baby born over two thousand years ago is cause for celebration.
Merry Christmas!!
His remarkable life has affected the course of history by what he was. He continues to affect us today by what he is. No one can look at what he did and said and remain the same. We number ourselves among those who believe he is what he claimed to be, Son of God, very God. Therefore, Merry Christmas, in the spiritual sense.
So much, in the traditional and the commercial, is erroneous; we know that. But the basics are true, so the traditions can be useful if remembered in that light. Merry Christmas, too, in the traditional sense.
