    Kirk Cameron, whom I first saw in the movie Fireproof but who has done many other things and is well known to most people, has a new movie out right now for a short time--Saving Christmas.

    Briefly, it begins with an emphasis upon Herod's slaughter of the innocents.

    Jeremiah 31:15 (KJV) Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, [and] bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they [were] not.

    Matthew 2:18 (KJV) In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping [for] her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

    It discusses the swaddling clothes and the burial clothes of Jesus.

    It discusses that Jesus died on a tree. Galatians 3:13 (KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree:

    And it considers the true history of St. Nicholas and suggests that he physically beat Arius at Nicaea (Nicea)--making him an heroic defender of the faith for saying that Jesus is God.

    So Kirk Cameron asks us to embrace the truth and beauty of Christmas as a time of great joy for the birth of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

    Saving Christmas is a 2014 contemporary Christmas card but it is an exuberant, full of life acceptance of all things beautiful about Christmas. Christians experience great joy even in the bleak mid-winter because of the Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown.

    May God Richly Bless You and Yours This Christmas and Always!
