Dear Folks -
The title of the "life talk" this week is "Digging Christmas."
To "dig" Christmas has, for me, two meanings:
First, to understand.
Second, to delve deeply into.
My goal in this talk was for us to understand both the context in
which the Christmas stories were conceived and told and to understand
the context in which we live. Our times and our lives are much more
like those who were in power at the time of the birth of Jesus than we
are accustomed to thinking. The talk I gave amplifies on these matters.
The text I used for the talk is below. The audio version is different
somewhat. You can listen to it by going to the Ordinary Life website
where you will also find the overheads, including cartoons, I used in
