I have the honor of reading scripture and prayer at chapel on campus today. In reviewing the passage, Luke 2:8-11 after watching a Christmas Classic, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, I was struck with this timeless message that this cartoon has brought into our homes.
Charlie Brown exclaims over and over that Christmas is too commercialized, especially when Snoopy decorates his doghouse for the town’s contest. Charlie Brown’s frustration comes to a head while trying to direct the Christmas play. Thankfully Linus is there to give him some perspective.
Who or what are the Linus’ in your life that have helped to bring perspective to you this holiday season?
