Christ stays in Christmas!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”ISAIAH 9:6

As people of faith, this season represents the birth of the One who showed the ultimate act of love by dying for us. It is meant to be a time of joy, love, laughter, and peace all because of One Man – Jesus Christ. Every time the words “Merry Christmas” are said or heard, the Truth and Reason for the season is declared and joy rings in our hearts and minds.

Recently, certain retailers have listened to the “scrooges” yelling from the rooftops that they are offended by this Love, thereby wanting to remove the Reason and replace it with a phrase that represents the season, “Happy Holidays”.

Many of you took the initiative to say “enough is enough”, and we are proud to say that you have made a difference. Those that took the time to make phone calls, send letters and emails have caused these retailers to produce commercials specifically saying “Merry Christmas.”

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The unity that has formed amongst people of faith is creating a powerful force. This force is one of love and respect, yet has a resounding voice that says, ” This is One Nation Under God and will stay that way.”
