“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the Door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” (Rev. 3:20) God is right there, right now… knocking. He wants to come in and be a part of our everyday life in a real way. But, we have a choice to leave that door closed, or to open it to him.
Christmas has come and gone, it’s now 2008. The hustle and bustle of shopping and family times have wound down and by now we’re all transitioning back into the routine of work or school (maybe a few pounds heavier though). Although the season has passed, I feel a little obliged to tell a personal Christmas story. And, although it deals with a difficult subject, I find it completely necessary to discuss. The reason is simple. I will take every opportunity I can, as I believe all people of faith should, to speak out against, discredit, and fight injustice and ignorance.
