Behold, the Great Show of Imagination
It would appear the interweb thingy has finally made its appearance in Mississippi. It's the only logical conclusion I can find as to why it took Jason so long to finally start a blog. And he's all in the Christmas spirit, too:
I believe Christmas is a time to celebrate the greatest show of imagination the world has ever seen--God becoming man, or even more--God becoming infant. Reindeer, elves, snowmen, and a jolly old man delivering presents every year make for a pretty good story, but compared to the story of Jesus, I think it is like comparing The Davinci Code to The Odyssey or to the other great epics...

The problem is that the great story has become common, and the story that is somewhat common is now seen as imaginative. I hear as many songs about jingle bells and winter wonderlands as I do about the wonder of God incarnate. Where is our imagination?

Now as you all find yourselves amidst the consummation of the Advent season, may the presence of the incarnate Son of God, Emmanuel, be right with you.

Because that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
