Christmas finally it’s here for millions of people. Who will observe the day mostly from the perspective of halls decked with holly and mistletoe. And of course, along with all the other festivities associated with the day. Unaware or unwilling to know that Christmas is an every day celebration with the beginning of each new day.
But before going on, it should be understood that seeing the house decked with holly. Along with flashing lights with ample mistletoe is very magical with its impact being most relaxing. Merry making is part of life and has a necessary and proper place in our lives because it’s a way of recuperation.
Although difficult because of work, and other responsibilities, people should find time for some form of merry making everyday.
There is a supernatural equivalent to carnal merry making. It’s can be experienced by serving oneself Holy Communion. Because this holy sacrament helps rejuvenate our souls. Done in this manner as a prayer. Take a cracker, and break it, eat it, and repeat, “This is your body broken for me. Take some wine or grape juice, and drink it, and say, “This your blood shed for the remission of my sins.” Concluding by saying, “Amen, or So be it.” It’s a scared experience to be reverenced and not to be taken lightly. See 1 Corinthians 11:23-32.
We are all specimens of sacredness which includes body, soul and spirit. Merry making for the soul (mind) can be accomplished by carefully and slowing reading our holy scriptures. Perhaps just a few scriptures or just one scripture being sufficient. It’s more about being in a meditative state of mind. Here’s two soul filling foods. “But if we hope for what we can not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” Text: Romans 8:25. Here’s another, “He/she who is slow to anger is better than the mighty. And he/she, who rules their spirit than he/she who takes a city.” Text: Proverbs 16:32. They are absorbed into the body just like ones favorite Christmas foods. They become the substances of great sustainability. They are digested, and make us what we want and are destined to be. Meditate in terms of needing something to go your way, Romans 8:25. And Proverbs 16:32, as the perfect antidote for troublesome situations.
Enjoy the day, and may the Christ of Christmas bless, satisfy and provide for you this day and everyday. Text: Jude 25.
Clergy people get sick, vacation, retire or move on. This padre duly ordained can temporarily fill that vacancy. Perhaps teach a Sunday day school. Share in an adult study group. You select the topic perhaps a topic rather conventional. Or perhaps a journey down the corridors of topics seldom discussed.
And of course, for those of you not associated with organized religion. But interested in specific religious topics. Then all the corridors of topical explorations are available for discussion. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather. All arrangements can be made through the Contact Us link on my Home page.
Also with a degree in political science a galaxy of other topics can be selected. From journeys through the traditional avenues of interest. Right through the arena of political and social topics seldom explored.
CfS is a church without walls, and therefore, without membership.
