This edition of Crosstalk began with Jim quoting from an article from Baptist Press. The headline reads like this: 84% of Christians Say U.S. Has Forgotten True Meaning of Christmas. The statistics within the article are from an Ipsos poll. Interestingly, the poll failed to ask respondents their view of the true meaning of Christmas.
From the same publication comes the story that business is bouncing back in Bethlehem after two years in the doldrums.
After presenting details from these two stories, Jim focused the attention of listeners on why we celebrate this time of year. True, we don’t know the exact day of Christ’s birth but we do know that He was born and for what reason. In order to emphasize that point, Jim read a commentary from the late Dr. Adrian Rogers from 2016. The headline was: The Greatest Event in Human History.
The remainder of the broadcast involved giving listeners the opportunity to share a brief Christmas thought or greeting to loved ones or perhaps the entire listening audience.
Be blessed as you review this program and Merry Christmas to all from everyone at VCY America!
