Merry Christmas to us all, and God bless everyone

Merry Christmas to everybody! May the true spirit of Christmas find each of us, and dwell in us.

The photo in this post is of St. George's Parish Church in St. Kitts. I like to imagine how a Christmas Eve candlelight service would look there. It's a beautiful church with quite a history, but what I like most about it is the crucifix.

Contemporary churches often choose to have no crosses at all because of the notion they symbolize a big downer. But then it is all too easy to lose sight of why you're in church to begin with.

Having a cross, or better, a crucifix, is a reminder of the enormity of the gift God gave to all humankind, and that gift is one truly worthy of celebrating every year.

Well, I'm eager to go try a Gurkha cigar I picked up earlier in the week, an Evil. That’s a bit of an odd contrast--an Evil cigar on Christmas Eve. ;)
