Where is Mike Ray? Did he disappear from the blogosphere?

plus, there's much better reasons to boycott Target & WalMart ;)


I've been trying to formulate this idea in my own mind for some there is no need. You have stated it so perfectly. There is so much that is wrong with our country this time of year, and Target omitting the word "Christmas" isn't one of them. Thanks for articulating this so well!


Great thoughts. We think a lot alike you on this. Shannon wrote something very similar about the growing "controversy" of taking Christmas out of marketing. You can read what she said at our blog at:

I liked your suggestion for a petition to remove Christmas from all marketing. Now that's one worth signing!

Christmas is NOT about greedy consumption. It's about something so much more wonderful than what all the retailers have to offer. But what to do so that our celebration of this time is set apart? This is something that we are struggeling with. I'd love to hear more about what your family is doing. How do you celebrate?

Mike, that email excerpt was just unbelievable, and all I can say to your response is--Amen! (even though I always try to get you to not be so agree...) I agree that it is best if Jesus were not at all part of any marketing scheme. Lord help us to await our Saviour this Advent, and help to love, to serve, and to forgive.
