Overlooked Christmas Scriptures

December 19th, 2013 by Adam G.

Christmas is fundamentally a family holiday. We should celebrate the Christ child, but we don’t need to be lugubrious about it. We don’t need to suppress family fun because the family is in the image of the Holy Family and pleasing to God. Your family relation is part of the deep spiritual core of Christmas, as two overlooked passages of Christmas scripture show. (more…)

Sacramental Christmas

December 23rd, 2011 by Adam G.

Bigger than the place, because it binds us to all the Saints who are taking it with us worldwide, and to God in his heaven. Bigger than time, because it brings us to the foot of the cross and to the times when we made our covenants. (more…)

Back in the day, dropping off some fraction of a beef cow in a tithing envelope every Sunday was impractical, so you needed some settling up where you brought in two steers and a heifer, and the Bishop gave you back a lamb and a few bales of hay to make it all square. Tithing settlement is a boost for the Bishop since he gets to interact with his non-”problem” members, but that’s about it. Instead, tithing settlement has–dare we say it?–a liturgical value.
