Soul Sunday

For those who find themselves depressed or feeling lost at Christmas time, searching for the true meaning of the holiday amidst the glitz and commercialism of the modern age. Let us rejoice in the meaning of Christmas and the holidays from one of the all time classic Christmas specials A Charlie Brown Christmas.

After getting fed up with the over commercialization of Christmas, Charlie Brown asks “Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” And it is Linus who steps up and offers the words of wisdom, quoting from the Bible the gospel of Luke (chapter 2: 8-14)

"And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid ... And the angel said unto them, "Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings o great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord."

"And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men."

That's what Christmas is all about.

Let us all take a moment to remember the true reason we celebrate. It is not about the presents, or the cookies or the movies on TV. It is about a baby who came into this world to save us all. 

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.
