Christmas

"Christmas is not a retreat from reality but an advance into it alongside the Prince of Peace." David McCasland, author

"Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts." Janice Maeditere (Who is Janice Maeditere?)

"He is born that we might have life. Pretty astounding." Father Brad, a character in Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon

" . . . know the joy, feel the warmth, share the sweetness, and celebrate the gift!" Douglas Pagels (Information needed about Douglas Pagels)

"Let us at all costs avoid the temptation to make our Christmas worship a withdrawal from the stress and sorrow of life into a realm of unreal beauty. It was into the real world that Christ came, into the city where there was no room for Him, and into a country where Herod, the murderer of innocents, was king.
He comes to us, not to shield us from the harshness of the world but to give us the courage and strength to bear it; not to snatch us away by some miracle from the conflict of life, but to give us peace - His peace - in our hearts, by which we may be calmly steadfast while the conflict rages, and be able to bring to the torn world the healing that is peace."
