Well, folks. It’s time to depart from the Commentators’ Table and head back your own place for the Feast of the Nativity. Most of you have already departed (judging by the lack of comments on the last few posts), and those of you who are left: GET A LIFE!
Thanks for your company in 2010. We’ve had a few hiccups this year and found a new home (Thanks WordPress Hosting). We’ve made a lot of new friends along the way. There are now 174 approved commentators on this list – that’s a big table! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you all, and making contacts all over Australia and over the world, with Catholics and Orthodox and Lutherans and Anglican and Atheists and Muslims and all sorts.
And I wish all of you (yes, even the Atheists and Muslims – you can take it or leave it!) a happy and holy Christmas.
To that end, I tried to find something to illustrate my Christmas greetings for the year. My mother, who has recently discovered the joys of email, heard about people sending “e-greetings”, and so this Christmas, rather than buying and sending cards to everyone, she scanned one Christmas card and emailed it to everyone… Those who know me know that I don’t send Christmas cards at all (if you got one purporting to be from me, check the signature). So don’t be offended if you didn’t get one. I haven’t dropped you from the list. I don’t HAVE a list!
So, I went onto the net to try and find a profound Youtube video to inspire your Christmas. I failed. I found these:
1) How it really happened. Actually this is for my children; we recently had a car-quiz – the tricky questions Dad asks you to puzzle over while on long car trips – in which I asked how many kings the bible says went to the stable to visit the baby Jesus.
2) And how it might have happened if it happened today
