The Unifying Factor of CHRISTmas

Christmas is a few days behind us, and fading fast. Sad how all that build up lasts for weeks and then--it's over.

So before it's gone, I want to express my love for the holiday.

I love Christmas. Everything about it. But one of the most amazing things is the way it brings us all together. I mean, every Christian denomination. Suddenly, the finer details of our beliefs fall away as the one Factor we all believe in comes to the forefront.

Jesus Christ.

It's wonderful, isn't it? In God we trust. We're united in Christ. Through him, we are one.

I witnessed this firsthand during the holiday season when I participated in a multi-faith Christmas concert. Several different church congregations and school choirs met for a two-day Christmas concert commemorating the birth of our Savior. It was beautiful. We were all brothers and sisters in Christ, no matter what church building we attended.

It's that feeling I hope I can keep with me all year long.

Merry Christmas. It's not really over.

Merry Christmas! I love Christmas Eve mass with the children singing the wonderful carols.
