Christmas wisdom

Originally published in December 19, 2016, issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Think of Christmas and what may come to mind are the various things generally associated with this holiday: gifts, family, festivities, traditional foods, Christmas carols … the list could go on. 

But for many, Christmas can be best described not in terms of material things, but in terms of spiritual qualities such as love, joy, and peace, which warm the heart and represent the deeper spirit of the season. 

If you’re a Christian, you’ll probably think about the holiday’s central connection with the birth of Christ Jesus, and the momentous and prophetic role he played in the salvation of humanity.
