Yesterday, I was listening to a Christian radio station and they were playing Christmas songs (particularly songs about the Nativity). At first I was like, “Already? Isn’t it too early?!” Then I was thinking maybe the Christian radio stations wanted to beat the commercial market on advertising for Christmas.
Then today, they mentioned that there is a ballot out for vote in a town here in Michigan where they are deciding whether a Nativity should be displayed in front of a courthouse. The radio announcer mentioned that one person complained to the ACLU and then they removed the Nativity scene display… just one person.
Hmm… this is when we will see if the voice of one person or the “voices of one” can prevail.
Either way, before all the shopping advertisements, Santa Claus, and “Happy Holiday” banners, it was a fresh reminder that Jesus is truly the reason for the season.
