Merry Christmas

"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." - Mahatma Gandhi

Nang mabasa ko ang quote na iyan ni Gandhi, di ko maiwasang hindi ito i-apply sa ating pagse-celebrate ng Pasko.

I like the first Christmas. I do not like the way us Christians celebrate Christmas.

I like the idea of a Savior who chose to be born in simplicity. I do not like the way us Christians celebrate Christmas with extravagance.

I like the idea of a Savior who chose the message of poverty as a source of power. I do not like the way us Christians fought for power and drove the world into poverty.

Our Christmas is so unlike the first Christmas.

Isang simple at mapagpalayang Pasko sa inyong lahat.
