Something to think about as we approach Christmas…
The manger or nativity scene has caused quite a stir in recent years. It seems to upset those who believe that they are seeing a depiction of an event that symbolizes only Christianity.
I feel sorry for those people who have blinders on their eyes and shutters on their minds. The manger scene is truly remarkable from all views if one would only take a moment to look rather than to jump to judgment.
What the manger scene really depicts is a Jewish man and his wife who has given birth to a Jewish baby who will become the first Christian. Therefore both Judaism and Christianity are represented.
So when you are asked to support a local movement to erect manger scenes on public property say yes and just remember the only ones not represented are the ACLU, because the manure had been removed before the wise men arrived.
