耶稣或者圣诞吗?

11月28日2005

以免你认为我是假日里的行头,let me tell you I am not.  I love the holiday season!  In fact,just yesterday my wife and I and our four children went out and cut down a Christmas tree and spent the evening decorating it.  I love the time with family,朋友,而给予的精神围绕着节日的季节。

然而,当我坐在这里,I am made to wonder about a few comments I frequently hear from folks.  I am told by some that "Jesus is the reason for the season."  Others say we need to put "Christ back in Christmas."  Yet,I'm forced to wonder just what will happen this year.  You see,12月25日是星期天,the Lord's day.   I wonder how many will celebrate with Santa rather than worship our Savior?

我觉得很讽刺的是,听说礼拜天晚上教堂要关门,and people who are already planning on staying home from worship while at the same time proclaiming that we need to put "Christ back in Christmas."  I'm just wondering who will win out when we are forced to make a choice between Jesus and Santa?

好吧,我们只有不到一个月的时间来观望。
