Reason we celebrate
At this time of year and as I go around the Fayetteville area, I see many displays celebrating Christmas, but I am concerned that it seems people here have forgotten the real reason we celebrate Christmas.
As I go through the city, I see many displays of what people have put out to celebrate the Christmas season. I am concerned that the celebrations do not display the real meaning of Christmas. I see many displays of snowmen, Santa Clauses, elves, reindeer, lights: I see little of the real reason of Christmas.
I see no Nativity scenes or displays of Jesus, who is the real meaning of the season. All I see is people celebrating, and the only time I see the real celebrating of the season is in church.
God is still in control and we must not forget that.
