Direct Thoughts of Others

My thoughts are always influenced by the thoughts of those around me, or at least the thoughts of those around me to which I listen. Today, during this Christmas season, I will share their thoughts directly.

“We Christians would do well to remind ourselves of the true meaning of the incarnation. We are part of a great drama that God has chosen to be a participant in, not in the role of a conquering king but as a suffering servant, not with the intention to condemn the world but to redeem it. He saw the inestimable worth of human life, regardless of social status, wealth and worldly achievements, intelligence or national origin. So should we.”

Peter Wehner

“It is Christmas time, a halting of hate time.
On this platform of peace, we can create a
Language to translate ourselves to ourselves and to
Each other.
At this Holy Instant, we celebrate the Birth of
Jesus Christ
Into the great religious of the world.
We jubilate the precious advent of trust.
We shout with glorious tongues at the coming of Hope.
All the earth’s tribes loosen their voices
To celebrate the promise of Peace.”

Maya Angelou
