  • Why the shepherds?

    I have always been interested in the nativity story. Joseph and Mary making the long journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem for the Roman census has always piqued my interest. Why couldn’t the Inn Keeper find someplace for Mary and Joseph on the night Jesus was born? Did Bethlehem as a whole miss the birth of the King of Kings? Didn’t anyone show up to assist this young couple who was forced to use a manger for a cradle?

  • The true Spirit of Christmas

    This year it will come in many forms. It may be a version of Dickens’ classic “Christmas Carol,” when the ghosts of Christmas wake Scrooge up to the Spirit of the season. It may be a Hallmark movie, or the newest version of “The Santa Claus,” encouraging us to believe again in Santa. Or maybe it will be George Banks reliving his “Wonderful Life,” and discovering how love, self-sacrifice, community and family are so vital.

  • Making the most of today

    Some people focus on the past, some dream about the future, but we all live in the present. You can spend all of your time looking back on the past and lose touch with the reality of today. Or you can spend all day dreaming about tomorrow and wasting today away. Regardless of yesterday and tomorrow, today is all we have. And we should make the most of it.

    Be careful to avoid the trap of backward thinking. It is easy to allow your past to consume you.

  • Happy Holidays

    Well, I guess the holiday season has officially started.  Thanksgiving has come and gone.  Black Friday and Cyber Monday are in the past and now we are in the sprint to the finish.

    Between family gatherings, last minute shopping, the occasional Christmas or New Year’s party, it seems like a breathless time of year.  Santa may be making his list and checking it twice, but so are most of us.  The gift list, the grocery list, the Christmas card list, the invitation list…it all piles up at once.
