Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in our state capitol.
Every Sunday we gather at John Knox Kirk to study the peaceful healer who found opportunities in his time to teach us that boundaries are meant to be crossed in the name of social justice.
National candidates for President race to embrace Christianity for votes, and cable news networks cry foul that Christmas is under attack by liberal society, but I can't help to think this world would be a better place if we all exercised our Christian credentials by forgiving one another and spreading peace and love instead of engaging in the negative propaganda campaigning which will inevitably dominate the commercials this summer and fall.
I've asked Santa for a US Congress that will work together in 2012 and he told me the Red Ryder BB gun was on it's way.
Have a safe and happy holiday! Peace and prosperity for the new year!
Meaning of ChristmasCharlie Brown: Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?
Linus Van Pelt: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about.
"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward man.'"
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
