New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 20, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Religious focus Hnrald-Zeltunf Friday December 20,1985 Page5A Time to prepare for real Christmas Briefly By BIV. BARBARA R. GALLO WAV-EDS Alt First United Msthodist Churoh Ready or not. Christmas is coining! It Is a fact: we have less than one week to get our lives organized; to become finally prepared for Christmas 1985. We are in the countdown posture. Are YOU ready? I suppose that I have heard that question more in the last couple of Ministerial alliance days than I have heard it all year long Most of the people asking it are inquiring as to my readiness to fulfill the expectations and details of the season. Am I ready? I think all my shopping is done I hope that all the cards are done. I’m never fully ready for the parties or for all the family who make their way into our home, but that’s okay. When I think about readiness at Christmastime. I think about the lack of preparation most of us do in celebration of the real event of Christmas. I know that our lives get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the commercialization of the season. Why is it that so many Christians get caught this way? What keeps us from keeping Christ at the center of the celebration'’ The importance of this holiday began centuries ago when God loved us enough to give a human being for us. and yet. so many times we trivialize this blessed even! with games of “who gave what to whom?” Are you ready to celebrate that See SEASON, Page 12A Worship at the church of your choice Local.
