Merry Christmas, pardner.

It is too easy for me to put a veneer over Christmas. GIFTS! FAMILY! PRESENTS! FOOD! SHOPPING! VOLUNTEERING! POTLUCKS! FANCY PARTIES! [and a little jesus]. Altruism, family and generosity are all worth writing home about, but (yes you see where this is going:) Christmas is so much richer than that. I am grateful that Jesus had skin like mine and that God gave us his son to speak my broken human language. Let’s stop hoarding the joy and start celebrating this baby that changed the world. (I dare you to disagree with that sentence.)

    After contemplating this blog, I was compelled to buy the audiobook of “Lamb: The gospel according to Biff, Christ’s childhood pal” for my holiday travel listening pleasure. It’s great if you like to think about Jesus being an everyday person and have a sense of humor about a little sacrilege.
