New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 13, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Religious focus Hnrald-Zfitiinf Friday, December 13, 1985 Pago SA Best gift wrapped in love Bf CHAPLAIN RODNEY A. WELLS ■Boa Bania, Ina. The anticipation and excitement of Christmas can be contagious. It is a disease that people like to get! The smiles and joy children have in seeing dolls, games and a wide variety of adventure toys make it possible for adults to be reminded of their own Christmas experiences and memories of the past It is amazing that so much time and effort are put into creating a magical atmosphere that can cause the normal activities of a busy world to come to a standstill. People make special arrangements to travel and Ministerial alliance ►«*r Ste 11 work so that they can be with their families at this time. All this effort for one person’s birthday. Birthday? Who’s you ask? Well, Jesus Ben Joseph, also known as the carpenter’s son from Nazareth. Is this the same man who was in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, who turned over the money changer’s table, who healed on the sabbath, and who said that an adulterer was to go and sin no more. It this the man whose birthday we are celebrating? Strange how many toys are being sold, clothes bought, cards sent to hQnor Him! Oh, yes. there is another part of Christmas It is the popular celebration of what has been attached to Christian life and practive for centuries.

Or at least that seems to be the approach that so many take regarding this national holiday. No, this Is not another “ain’t it awful how they went and ruined Christmas” article. We are all brought together by events that seem to catch the attention and boggle the mind. Earthquakes, hurricanes, plane crashes, ship hijackings, space walks, yes. and football teams that go to state. We look for ways to feel good about life and out part in it We need the moments of joy and the songs of cheer to make the frustrations of having to work late, having a car not run right, having to give up smoking because the doctor told us we had to, all seem worth it! Just as God was in the manger with the Babe of Bethlehem, we see the giver of the See GIFT, Page 6A ti# tmi t Local #V-    »#    -Hr-.    o    r#V-    *21    r-    £/, Worship at the church of your choice | Assemble# Ds Dios (Spanish Assembly of God), 255 W Commerce St. Sunday school 5 30 p m ; evangelistic service 6 30 p m .
