Let it be Christmas everywhere, in what we do and celebrate

Another year has come and gone. It’s time to celebrate Jesus’ birthday. The one who died on the cross to save us from our sins arose on the third day, and he is coming again.

With everything going on in this world, Jesus is coming soon. We need to watch and pray. Get ready.

What a day that will be.

Christmas is a time to celebrate. Feel the love of the season wherever you are. Let every heart sing and every bell ring the story of hope, joy and peace.

Let it be Christmas everywhere. Let anger and fear and hate disappear. Let there be love that lasts through the year.

Let it be Christmas in the songs that we sing and the gifts we bring.

Let it be Christmas in what we believe, from sandy white beaches where blue water rolls to snow-covered mountains and valleys below.

I wish everyone everywhere to have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Come Dec. 21 at 6 p.m. at the Pentecostal Holiness Church, Fayette Street, for our Christmas program.

This letter is a part of a song I will be singing, “Let it be Christmas.” Lots of others will be singing, too. It’s a time of Christian fellowship.

May God bless all of you and keep you in His care.

  • Remember, we’re not immune to extinction

    I’d like to pose a theoretical scenario to Cal Thomas.

    If a medical specialist said, “Cal, you’ve got a serious physical problem. Do nothing and you’ll die soon. Follow my prescription, which involves certain life-style changes, and there’s a good probability you’ll live, even if your life may be a bit more constrained than now.”
