You’re probably annoyed by the Christmas Culture Wars and all the chatter about which cup Starbucks is using, whether you should say, “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas”, and the way it’s all become political fodder for both the right and the left. But there is something you can do to keep the main thing the main thing about Christmas – which is how God takes the unlikely initiative to come to us in the birth of a child to share the fullness of God’s love that changes everything about everything. Just start sharing a new Christmas greeting – “Merry ChristBirth.” Do it with incredible awe, deep humility, respect for others and because you know in the depth of your soul that it is indeed good news about a great joy that is God’s gift to us. It won’t change the world. But it just may transform how you experience Christmas.
