Mrs. T and I wish to share this Christmas message relayed from our friends Don and Sandy. We thought it most appropriate for the true spirit of Christmas, especially now, here in America, as well as around the World....
This Christmas our family is celebrating Jesus - not just the baby born in a lowly manger- but the outlaw. The Jesus who stood up for and cared for the lowest in society - the outcasts - the women and children - the foreigners and ethnics looked down upon. Jesus, the dark skinned, Middle Eastern , the very Son of God sent to show us how to love, sent to save us from ourselves. Our prayer is that God helps us love the way Jesus loves.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!ReplyDelete
Oh, this is not the currently popular Jesus.ReplyDelete
I love this. The Jesus that you describe would look askance at how our "lowest in society - the outcasts -ReplyDelete
the women and children - the foreigners and ethnics" are treated by our present administration.
An excellent reminder about the true spirit of Christmas, thank you! I hope you had an enjoyable holiday with your family.ReplyDelete
This was Jesus' message as I understand it and the one I live by. Happy New Year to you and your family!ReplyDelete
That's very beautiful and radical.ReplyDelete
