What has happened to the old-fashioned, spiritual Christmas? The cause is our disregard of Advent. The church set aside this four-week pre-Christmas season as a time of spiritual preparation for Christ's coming. It is a time of quiet anticipation. If Christ is going to come again into our hearts, there must be repentance. Without repentance, our hearts will be so full of worldly things that there will be 'no room in the inn' for Christ to be born again. We have the joy not of celebration. Which is the joy of Christmas, but the joy of anticipation. John R. Brokhoff, Preaching the Parables |   Questioning

Let us not on this Christmas, in our enjoyment of the abundance with which Providence has endowed us, forget those who, because of the cruelty of war, have no shelter-- those multitudes for whom, in the phrase of historic irony, there is no room in the inn. In this blessed season, let not blind passion darken our counsels. We shall not solve a moral question by dodging it. We can scarcely hope to have a full Christmas if we turn a deaf ear to the suffering of even the least of Christ's little ones. Harry S. Truman |   Passion

The real spirit of Christmas is the joy of giving. We all of us enjoy what we receive, primarily because of the fact that behind each gift lies the loving thought of some individual.

More than 2,000 years ago, a child was born to two faithful travelers who could find rest only in a stable, among the cattle and the sheep. But this was not just any child. Christ's birth made the angels rejoice and attracted shepherds and kings from afar. He was a manifestation of God's love for us. And He grew up to become a leader with a servant's heart who taught us a message as simple as it is powerful: that we should love God, and love our neighbor as ourselves. President Barack Obama |   Compassion

At Christmas I am always struck by how the spirit of togetherness lies also at the heart of the Christmas story.

Late on a sleepy, star-spangled night, those angels peeled back the sky just like you would tear open a sparkling Christmas present.

The angels called it "Good News," and it was. Larry Libby |   Top Ten |

I wonder whether the Christmas feeling has anything to do with the sixth sense. Perhaps we're a little more the angels at Christmas than we are during the rest of the year.

Let's face it: the Holiday Season brings up mixed emotions. Many times it is a mixed bag of conflicting feelings. For some, it is loneliness, for others it is grief and sorrow, as it highlights the loss of a loved one during the year.
