For the last several years, Bob and I have attended a session on theme of Christmas and the politics in the Christmas story. We come to escape the more prominent Christmas messages in our culture to try to go back in time and reread the scriptures of Luke and Matthew through the lens of that time. So on the link below, I share with you some of what is discussed in our gathering. The gathering is always lively, mainly attended by young people living in small faith communities in Philadelphia and serving as urban missionaries. The politics of Christmas is as relevant now as it was over 2000 years ago.
