A Christmas letter

Editor's note: Last Christmas season a Christian Scientist sent a personal message about joy to some of his friends, co-workers, and family members. He was writing to people of many different backgrounds and religious traditions, and we thought Sentinel readers also would enjoy this Christmas greeting.

Mary Baker Eddy, who founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, and is the author of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, once observed: "The basis of Christmas is the rock, Christ Jesus; its fruits are inspiration and spiritual understanding of joy and rejoicing,—not because of tradition, usage, or corporeal pleasures, but because of fundamental and demonstrable truth, because of the heaven within us" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany).
