Merry Christmas! Again

By Jim O’Neill

Hark the herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn king”

Peace on earth and mercy mild

God and sinners reconciled

Joyful all ye nations rise

Join the triumph of the skies

With angelic host proclaim

“Christ is born in Bethlehem”

 

Excerpt from “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” lyrics by Charles Wesley (1707-1788) and various authors

 

It is mighty nice to have Jesus back in the fold again, so to speak – just in time for His birthday too!

After many (way too many) years of American Christianity being subtly and not so subtly attacked by forces inimical to Jesus/God, it is with joyous expectation and relief that “we the people” look forward to President-Elect Donald J. Trump (and VP-Elect Mike Pence) reinstating “Merry Christmas!” while showing “Happy Holidays” the door.  We look forward to them ushering in a period of grace where Jesus and His teachings once again serve as a lodestone and compass for America to steer by.

So “Hark, and welcome back Jesus, happy birthday!”  May we as a country, and as individuals, be worthy, and act worthy, of Christ’s manifold blessings — Amen.
