Merry Christmas

And some interesting quotes to ponder:

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does the truth become error because nobody will see it. -
Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

I cannot conceive otherwise than that He, the Infinite Father, expects or requires no worship or praise from us, but that He is even infinitely above it. -
Benjamin Franklin, statesman, author, and inventor (1706-1790)

For me, words are a form of action, capable of influencing change.
-Ingrid Bengis, writer and teacher (b. 1944)

There are few things more disturbing than to find, in somebody we detest, a moral quality which seems to us demonstrably superior to anything we ourselves possess. It augurs not merely an unfairness on the part of creation, but a lack of artistic judgment. Sainthood is acceptable only in saints.
-Pamela Hansford Johnson, poet and novelist (1912-1981)

I affirm the historic Christian faith, which includes the virgin birth and the Trinity and the inspiration of the Bible and much more. I'm a part of it, and I want to pass it on to the next generation. I believe that God created everything and that Jesus is Lord and that God has plans to restore everything. - Rob Bell (b. 1970)

And again, Merry Christmas!
