  • An annual Christmas wish list

    The annual Christmas Wish List hasn't changed a whole lot from last year's. I'm not quite sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    For those who might be unfamiliar with the "list," each year at Christmas I publish a tongue-in-cheek wish list for various individuals and groups in the community. It's gotten to be such a regular thing that it almost wouldn't seem like Christmas without it.

    So, here goes...

    Dear Santa,

  • Merry Christmas

    And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

    (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

    And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

    And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David.)

  • Reach out to those hurting during the holidays

    The holiday season is supposed to be a time for good tidings and joy. But, as we all know, that is not always the case.

    All too often, the holidays bring sadness and depression. Those who have lost a loved one are often reminded of that pain as Christmas, a time for spending time with our families, draws near.

    To that end, local support group GriefShare is offering a "Surviving the Holidays" meeting tomorrow from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Andrew United Methodist Church. For more information on this program, see today's Calendar page.
