Getting ready for Christmas involves decorating the house, shopping (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday), planning menus, and trying to create wonderful Christmas memories that will linger in the face of yet another COVID variant, economic woes and a political landscape that continues to deteriorate. Getting ready for Christmas also means preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ who was born long ago, is present as the risen Christ and will come again to make God’s Will just as real on earth as it already is in heaven. Both take a considerable amount of time and personal involvement, which in turn raises a profound, and perhaps somewhat troubling, question. What kind of investment are you going to make in the coming days?
