Last night we attended our city’s Christmas tree lighting celebration for the first time. There were local public-schooled kids that sang before the tree lighting and it was all very festive.
Since it was a city event and not a church event, I must admit I was very surprised the first time I heard the name Jesus sang in one of the songs, but they not only sang one song about him, they sang several. It was heartwarming, to say the least.
In this time of religious “freedom” when it as though all religions except Christianity seem to be freely accepted, it was such a wonderfully special experience for me, a Christian, to be able to hear songs about my Lord being sung without shame out in public.
I am so happy that all is not lost! As long as we have breath in our lungs, we can still praise the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank You, God, for the precious gift of Your Son that we are celebrating this season. May we never forget what you have done for us.
