My Annual CHRISTmas Rant! :-)

“The Holiday season is upon us in full swing so it’s time for my annual rant.  I will keep this as short and sweet as possible. First of all it’s CHRISTmas! That’s the way I choose the spell the season, to put a bit of emphasis where it belongs. Now, I don’t insist that you celebrate it, nor do I insist that businesses recognize it, however, if a business wants my business during this season they better make it their business to celebrate The Reason for the season! Merry CHRISTmas! Now, to the religious fuddy-duddies who want nothing to do with this celebration of CHRIST’s Virgin Birth, the Mystery-filled Incarnation, the Wonderful Nativity of the Savior of the World, because a few pagan/heathen ancient symbols may have hitched a ride on our party, I say, grow up and deck the halls! Don’t you realize they are singing JOY TO THE WORLD and SILENT NIGHT in the malls? Don’t you get the fact that more folks will attend a church service this time of year than any other? SEIZE the season! Spread the JOY! Give gifts to the poor! Share the GOSPEL! Gather the Harvest! So, to the Scrooges and Grinches, fair warning, you’d best get out of my way, or I will run you over in my one-horse-open-sleigh! Have yourself a happy-holy, holly-jolly, very merry CHRISTmas!” – Myles Holmes



  1. Marvelously spoken, Pastor! Chris and I have pledged to only shop at CHRISTIAN businesses this year (and every year to come) for gifts! (Hobby Lobby, Words of Wisdom, Chick-fil-le, Forever 21, to name a few). We let them know this when we check-out; It’s been a Blessing to the Businesses and it lets them know we stand in agreement with them when we support them! Have yourself a very Merry CHRISTmas! I look forward and am honored to share such a wonderful season with you, your family and our family at First AG! ☺
