The Scandal of Christmas

If you have read the Christmas story from the gospels of Matthew and Luke, you know that it was scandalous. A young unmarried woman was pregnant. Her fiance knew he was not the father. Should he stay with her or leave her?

And then, a King was born.

They suggest buying simpler, more personal gifts that foster relationships rather than fuel the materialistic machine that Christmas has become. A great idea.
