Christmas Gospel Tract at the Christmas Parade

A friend and I went to the Christmas parade this evening, and passed out 200 Christmas gospel tracts. (I just uploaded it to the “Downloadable Tracts” page.)  It was a small parade, and I’m very happy with 200 tracts. That’s about 1% of the population of this town.

The thing that struck us about the parade is that while it was a CHRISTMAS parade, it had very little to do with Christ. A small minority of Christians choose not to celebrate Christmas because they say it has pagan origins. They may or may not be right about its origins, but any paganism that was ever being obscured has come out of hiding, and there is very little Christian about how America celebrates Christmas.

    Hello;

    Great resources, thanks!

    Gotta go and share our faith… while we still have time.

    God bless.

    Good job with the tracts.

    I was actually pleasantly surprised by how many floats in the Christmas parade I watched had something related to Christianity, such as a nativity scene, an angel, or a cross.

    In the larger city I grew up in, that would be unheard of. In fact, there would be no such thing as a Christmas parade—probably a holiday parade at best, with equal time given to the secular version of Christmas (Santa Claus, trees, lights, etc.), Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. There would probably be little to no representation of the Christian faith. In one park, the nativity scene had to be removed; the menorah stayed.

    ntwia,

    I envy where you live. Our parade had a few churches with floats, but in general the purpose was Santa Claus, not Christ.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    You see that as a bad thing. I see it as a very good thing.

    Morse,

    I think we all know who is winning the battle for our culture currently, and it isn’t the Christians. That makes me all the more amazed at God’s mercy. Every day you continue to breathe His oxygen is one more day He’s kept you out of hell. You owe your continued existence to the God you go blog-to-blog mocking.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    How long will you be amazed of god’s mercy before you realize that there isn’t god’s mercy, because there isn’t a god?
