  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is one of my all-time favorite movies to watch during the holiday season.

    Every scene is quote-worthy and brings about big laughs.

    One scene in particular stands out to me:

    Clark Griswold has dragged his son, Russ, outside with him to start the big task of putting lights on the house.  Russ, who is not excited about helping out with this task at all, complains that his dad overdoes things.

  • Read this parody of the Christmas season that I recently read:

    “And there were in the same country children keeping watch over their stockings by the fireplace. And lo! And was said unto them Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy that is for all people who can afford them.”

  • We talk about the birth of the little baby Jesus. We talk about him being born eight miles outside Jerusalem, in the town of Bethlehem. 

    We talk about him lying in a manger, no crib for a bed. But when we fail to talk about his deity, when we fail to acknowledge that he is God, not only, do we miss the true meaning of Christmas, we also miss the very foundation of Christianity. 

  • Communion set for Dec. 30 in Bedford
