What does Christmas mean to you?
We seem to enjoy it for a number of reasons, but why do we continue to celebrate it? The story told in the New Testament by the Synoptics and the writers 50 to 75 years after Jesus has a few problems, it seems.
And did Jesus really want to establish a rich church to celebrate his life with costumes and riches?? And wasn’t the second coming supposed to be very soon – not thousands of years later?
It all seems so odd to me.
I love presents.
