    Christmas story of the week

    My son came home for Christmas eve after going to his church in a different state where he lives. The message of Christmas at his church that he mentioned briefly is that the real story of Christmas is found in the conception of Jesus. I never thought about it this way before, but Jesus being born is really just the fulfillment of what happened at his conception. The real significance of Christmas can be understood better when we think about the significance of the virgin birth. One of the most wonderful things that I am thankful for this Christmas is that we live in a place where we are allowed to have our religious beliefs. I struggle a lot with my Christian walk, but at least it's not against the law. I am so glad that people here are allowed to be Muslim, Jewish, Atheists, or whatever they want; as long as this means that I am allowed to be Christian. I just wrote to my daughter in Myanmar where being a Christian is against the law; and can be punished really harshly. There are a lot of other places in the world where a Christian person would be an outcast in society or worse. Christmas is a such a special time to remember what God has done for us. It is so amazing that God would care for any of us; and allow us to have a relationship with Him this way. Merry Christmas Wayne
