I listened to a conversation on CBC between three high school students and a mother of seven from 1968. The same timeframe that picture represents from the archives of the congregation that I now serve. It is a fascinating expression of asking the age old question: Has Christmas lost its meaning? CBC Radio suggests the question is almost as old as the season itself. Listen to it for yourself: Watching Christmas Debates http://www.cbc.ca/player/AudioMobile/Rewind/ID/2422670867/
Don’t get frustrated with the youth and young adults in your midst who are asking these sorts of questions. Thank God that they are asking them. And also remember that they are honest questions that need to be asked if we take this Season of Advent, and our faith, seriously.
Happy Advent and Merry Christmas…if it has any meaning for you:-)
