What is Christmas all about?

From the December 12, 2016 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Is it just about a decorated tree, or glitter of wrapped gifts for you and me? Can it really be about those invitations to celebrate with feasting and libations? What truly honors Jesus’ humble birth, the advent of the Christ-power here on earth, fulfillment of the Scriptures’ prophecy? It is our love of truth, the holy light from God above It is God’s angel thoughts to which we bow, Immanuel which touches our hearts now and frees us from each finite, worldly notion— distractions from God-centered, pure devotion. Let’s feel Christ’s gentle presence, prayer by prayer, the healing power that comforts every care.
