Year after year, I hear nauseating debates and arguments between Christians concerning the origins of Christmas; especially its apparent pagan roots. Some Christians see it as a topic in which they need to fight for the purity of their perceived theological persuasion. Other Christians fear that all along they have been secretly and unknowingly worshipping a pagan god, thus condemning themselves.
A few days ago we had a birthday party for my son Paul. He got wonderful gifts and had most of his friends come and play to their hearts content. After the party the group of 10 year olds could only manage to eat one cake so we had another full cake remaining. Why don’t my son and I go out at night and give big pieces of cake away to poor street kids. I asked my son and he thought it was a good idea. So at night we headed out.
