Excellent Excerpt Regarding the week long festive food display in the teachers lounge and the Wednesday night staff party: "either you must lose your lusts or your pleasures and delights or you cannot expect to find favor with God...". Key message from the text: redeem the time & honor Christ. Thanks for the reading, Tom.

Listen to this one There is plenty of Christ in this Christmas message
Celebrating the Lord's Birth Yes, believe it or not... A well known pastor of the past believes in celebrating the birth of a Savior that came into the world for sinners! How refreshing. How needed! I am not sure which is worst to behold, the way Christmas is profaned by a lost world around us, or the way some professing Christians have an "ax to grind" if they know of other Christians who gather to remember Christ's birth.
I suppose, if I wanted to share the gospel - it might serve to talk to the lost about the meaning of Christmas, and I might gain a hearing. I may not reach them if I come at them in condemnation for their profaning of a holiday.
