From 2nd Person In The Trinity To 2nd Class Citizen: Christmas #fleshYGod

Toy Adams has had a month long event on Imagining Jesus and he invited me to contribute. After much deliberation, this is a sample of my reflection:

We sing “God Bless America:while we point our fingers to countries, across the ocean, over there in the 2/3rd’s world and talk about their “unfreedom.”

The Gospels and the Pauline Epistles present a disturbing picture that Christendom has yet to grapple with. Jesus was a man who from his miraculous conception to his birth, in his life, and death, a man in chains.

A New Christmas Song (towards being honest)

This song is:

1) An attempt to respectfully add to our repoitoire of Christmas songs, while trying to be as truly historical as the other songs before it.

2) Making an attempt to reflect not only what Christmas is really about in our belief system, but also what we truly want from our All-Father.

My Favorite Christmas Movies

A number of folks have asked me what my favorite Christmas movies were, and so without further ado, here they are, and why.

#3. Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Without a doubt, this classic is meaningful to me. The most powerful scene has to be when Rudolf ends up on the Island of Lost Toys, the rejects of the North Pole. I like the whole message of how the marginalized are vindicated at the end. Just beautiful Christmas message, sorta like the Gospel of Luke!

 

#2. Elf. Elf is just hilarious. It’s one of Will Ferrell‘s last funny movies, and it has Zooey Deschanel. What more could you ask for? Oh, yeah and Sonny from The Godfather movies!
