THE LIGHT OF CHRISTMAS

"The Christ child created kinship among Jew and Greek, slave and free, male and female, heaven and earth*. Christmas calls everyone to the family table to feast alongside our brother Jesus and all our siblings in the family of God. Christmas is a family like no other." Wm. Loyd Allen, Upper Room Discipline, December, 2008

And I would add home and cyberspace:)


MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

  4. Looking forward to the day that all of those groups get along ;) (No more slaves, of course, we hope.)

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Thanks for the greetings.

    R.K., This will surprise you. When a ship carrying hundreds of people was recently turned away from Benin, Africa, officials suspected that the children on board were human slaves. The incident once again brought attention to the problem of slavery. At this moment, millions of men, women, and children—roughly twice the population of Rhode Island—are being held against their will as modern-day slaves.
