Every year at this time as I kept hearing more stories of Christmas and the manger scene got kicked off of town and school properties that sentiment kept growing and going further and further and I would get all mad and grumpy. How can this happen right here in our country? Then one day I heard a talk by a Christian speaker and in that talk he mentioned that we kind of did this to our selves for instance while we are talking about and complaining about not having a manger scene on the towns property how many of us have a manger scene on our own property. Well as I looked at our decorations I saw Frosty the snowman, Mickey and Minnie and Santa but there was no manger scene; all of our decorations were pretty but there was “no” “Christ” in our Christmas decorations. I have since corrected this and we now have Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus lit up in our front yard.
There are two other homes on our street which have the manger scene on display. As we Christians start finding their voice again in this country perhaps next year there will be more.
