Christmas: a shining star – a break from the tedious schedules in which we find ourselves. A time to gather and connect with friends and family.
But Christmas is more than a nice diversion – a blip on the radar screen of our hectic lives.
- For a moment in time we escaped drudgery, pressures, anxiety, and uncertainties.
- For a moment in time we humbly knelt before the Christ Child whose birthday we celebrate.
- For a moment in time we laid down our heavy burdens of doubt and fear and unanswered questions and savored the blessings of Christmas.
