Rea­son we cel­e­brate

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

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.
