Storm In A Coffeecup?

The recent controversy over the decision by a mega restaurant change in their holiday cups has been labeled a non-issue all the way to an all out war on Christianity.  Perhaps it is a wake-up call (no pun intended) for all Christians to reconsider what Christmas has become, to sort out the cultural trappings and reveal the deep significance this time has for Christ followers.  For anyone interested in rediscovering the true meaning of Christmas, this book is an eye-opening look at just that. Christmas is Not Your Birthday by Mike Slaughter.

"Every year, we say we’re going to cut back, simplify, and have a family Christmas that focuses on the real reason for the season―Jesus. But every year, advertisements beckon, the children plead, and it seems easier just to indulge our wants and whims. Overspending, overeating, materialism, and busyness rob us of our peace and joy and rob Jesus of his rightful role as the center of our celebration.

This Christmas, cut through the hype that leaves you exhausted and broke at the end of the year. Instead, experience the peace of knowing that God is truly with us, the joy of giving sacrificially, and the love of a Savior who gave everything he had for us. In five short, engaging chapters, Pastor Mike Slaughter inspires readers to approach Christmas differently, and be transformed in the process"
