It has been a long time since I have posted and have formulated so many posts in my head — nothing motivated me more than this article at Defending. Contending.

A Radical Approach to December 25th: Why we won’t be celebrating Christmas this year.

WARNING: This is not an easy subject to digest let alone to which to respond.  The Pilgrim writes:

How are we to instill a compassion in our children for the “least of these”, as Jesus would have us do yet engage in gross self-indulgence on December 25th under the guise of celebrating the birth of the One who was poor in this life and instructed us to give up all for Him, including our very lives? . . . doesn’t that make us hypocrites?
