Why not celebrate a counter cultural Christmas?
Christmas should not be an occasion for selfishness:
Assuming that a counter cultural Christmas would mirror thepersonal lifestyle of Jesus Christ. I think we can say that it wouldbe a lot simpler. The first Christmas was radically simple. Wearytravelers find shelter in a stable. Child is born, and his parentsare greeted by poor shepherds (outcasts living on the margins of their society) and angels who proclaim “peace on Earth, Good willtowards all.” Family, hospitality and solidarity with all humankindare the profoundly simple themes that surround the Lord’s birth.
