The Focus of the Christmas Season

How painful, a Christmas season with surging deaths in the U.S. May the joy of the season help us to overcome some of the difficulties in our restricted lives.

May those who struggle with depression find comfort and healing in this season. May we recognize the signs of depression in friends who hide their feelings with big smiles. May we give them words of comfort, where that’s possible.

To some extent, we are celebrating the fasted growing socio-religious movement in human history. Much of its growth now is in Africa and Asia.

When you catch the worldwide date on your cellphone tomorrow morning, it is a tribute to the life of Christ. When you purchase a book or books for a friend or loved, consider that the most popular and first book published mechanically in the West was the Bible. There must be something of value there. Don’t you think?
