It’s That Time of Year Again

Last year, I wrote a post questioning the whole concept of a “War on Christmas“. I had hoped that this year, things would be a bit calmer. But it appears that some still want to hold to the idea that Christmas is threatened. And others are feeling the same frustration I did last year (and still do).

I don’t have a whole lot else to say other than what I said last year, but I do want to point you to some other good thoughts on the issue. Blogging buddy Tony Sisk is covering this topic this year on his blog. Frankly, I wish I had thought to write the thoughts he is expressing in his posts! It’s good stuff, and passionately written. Go check it out and let him know what you think. His articles so far can be found here:

Update: Good homeschooling friend and blogger JenIG (Jenefer Igarashi) also had a great post recently about the idea of celebrating Christmas, but not even worrying about the “holy day” concept. Fascinating take on this subject, and one that has me intrigued.

Until next time,

steve :)

    I was going to say that your “War on Christmas” post was worthy of a repost as a comment on that post, but you beat me to the punch!

    You said in there, “And to try to force others in our country to celebrate, participate, or in any other way endorse my beliefs is to put the cart before the horse. That is not evangelism, and it is certainly not doing anything to advance the kingdom of Christ.

    That sums the nature of the scam up for me. Thanks for the links and the kind words.

    Blessings multiplied,

    Steve –

    Are you me? LOL … as usual, I read your writings and agree whole-heartedly. I read Jen’s post on her blog the day she wrote it — it so eloquently expresses what I have thought for years.
