My reflection today: TV Specials￼
“Storytelling is a part of Christmas. Each year repeat￼ ‘classics’ and new television specials are broadcast. These programs convey a message a meaning and sentiment of Christmas that may not mention Jesus at all.
The story of Jesus’ birth is also a ‘classic￼￼.’ It, too, deserves to be retold at Christmas; its message gives true purpose and meaning to all other holiday stories. The biblical accounts are found in the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke.
As we watch a Christmas ‘classic￼￼,’ would we add to the script or take out anything? Can we take time to read and discuss the biblical ‘classics’ as well as watch the TV specials?￼” – Terrance Schneider￼￼
Terrance reminds us that during this Christmas season￼ that we should think about the first Christmas and how it was a classic.￼
It certainly wouldn’t make today’s standards of a TV or Netflix￼ special￼. It might have made Hallmark.
