The message this Christmas is brief and I've also featured the various archival holiday messages on my sidebar. Many of the issues raised then haven't changed and I imagine will be with us for years to come. The Merry Christmas vs Happy Holidays controversy and the validity of the differing points of view are re-visited. I've been quite clear about my views on the subject, however, I recently read an article by John Pavlovitz, a self-described "20-year ministry veteran trying to figure out how to love people well and to live-out the red letters of Jesus." and it broadened a few concepts I had about this subject. In my opinion, this article has been one of the better perspectives on Why I'm a Christain who says "Happy Holidays".
*Enjoy this season of love, communion, goodwill, and charity.
