The complaints about the so-called "war on Christmas" seem
absent this year during the holiday season. It's not that the
supposed war is over or settled. It simply has been
overshadowed by the rhetoric, bullying and other after-effects of
the elections! And, it is not over yet and is not likely to
be over for some time. But it does give us all the more
reason to appreciate not only knowing the facts, but knowing enough
of the facts to maintain our mental and spiritual strength.
And note that I speak of strength.
We get confronted with a lot of words and stories, some of which is good information. Others might be garbage. And still others were perfectly valid at one time or in a particular situation, but they do not apply any longer. It is a very good thing to be able to tell the difference.
There is no substitute for the right information.
