  • Christmas Truce Thread

    Much like when the Germans and the Allies put down their weapons in the trenches in 1914, I'm opening this thread as a gesture of peace and goodwill, at least for the next 36 hours anyway.

    No nasty words, no mean thoughts.

    Just Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

    May the Birth of our Savior, and His subsequent life, death, and resurrection motivate and transform all of us to be more like Him.


    Merry Christmas TWEB Civics forum people!

    Merry Christmas, Jim. I hope you can spend some time with family.

    I'm hosting Christmas for the first time, so the next couple days will be interesting.

            Thank you. I hope you have a good Christmas as well... and don't forget who it is we're celebrating.

              Have a warm and safe Christmas James...

              And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
              Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

                  Jesus is the reason for the season.

                        I hope that you and yours enjoy a Merry Christmas and that we never forget what Christmas commemorates is infinitely more important than something fleeting like politics.



                        When I saw the thread title I immediately thought of this comic:

                          I hope the greetings extends to those of us here that don't hang about in Civics much!

                          May our Lord receive all the praise and glory due Him as we celebrate His birth!
