God With Us

Among the ancient Sunday School materials at one of the parishes I serve, my wife found Northwestern Publishing House's Christmas: A Christmas Eve Service for Children and Congregation (Copyright 1985). The schtick of this particular Christmas program is that the kids are going to spell Christmas letter by letter - C is for "Come to Me," etc. The program has a bit of a surprise ending:

"Narrator: As we put up the last letter "T," our word Christmas is complete. The name Christ stands out, doesn't it? That's how it should be. We can do without the M-A-S part of Christmas and not miss a thing."

The mind boggles.

A very blessed Christmas to you and yours as you receive Him where He has promised to be there for you: the Mas(s).
