COLBY, Kan. - Let us, for this season, forget our differences over the proper definition and way to celebrate.
For my Christian friends: May you have a blessed and merry Christmas as we celebrate our Saviour's birth, exchange gifts, and gather family and friends. For my non-Christian friends (and, yes, I have many) may this be a rewarding and happy season as you celebrate in your own way.
Peace. How do you define peace? Is it simply the absence of conflict?
We live in a world of conflict. For many this is a religious (not all Christian) holiday and for many it is simply a time of fun and fellowship. Why can't we just let everyone celebrate in their own way and stop the fuss and fighting over who's holiday it is.
Wouldn't it be great for just a brief time, if, we could all lay down our weapons of physical destruction and words of judgment and condemnation.
