No, I am under no delusions Jesus was born on December 25th, nor am I unaware of the pagan traditions steeped in current Christmas traditions. However, tis the season we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. The celebration of a God who sent His one and only Son to live, die, and resurrect so that you and I may have forgiveness and eternal life. He was born to die, so we could be born to live.
It is this truth we celebrate. As we bake a birthday cake, make a birthday banner, give gifts to those in need, and serve as we can, we do our best to teach our children the true reason for this season.
May your homes be blessed this year as you celebrate, participate in family traditions, and create new ones. We celebrate with you.
