If we're Christians, can we hold onto the true meaning of this season? It's not about the gifts under the tree, it's about the baby in the manger.
For some of us, it's about the family gatherings and traditions.
Now, before the holiday madness overwhelms us, let's remember why we're celebrating. Let us hold onto those reasons.
In this time more than many, it's important to remember that we have a mission--and it's not to get the best bargains. Could we transform our holiday season so that we're doing something to heal the world? It could be something as simple as adding socks for the homeless to our shopping list or adding compost to our gardens.
Or maybe it will be something that transforms the world!
