Thanksgiving is Coming! Is it time to Rethink Christmas?

Thanksgiving and Black Friday always seem to ramp up the "keep Christ in Christmas" battle.  I can understand folks wanting to acknowledge their faith. However, the aggressive tone of some does nothing to make the Christian faith attractive to others. And I am not sure it helps strengthen our discipleship either.

My denomination, the United Methodist Church, has a Rethink Christmas campaign out which might help Christians experience a more powerful holiday season this year.  If you want to know more, then go to http://www.umcor.org/christmas

If you feel the need to fight the battle for Christmas, perhaps there is a battle that helps others instead of alienating them.  Maybe there is something worth fighting for this Christmas.
