Pastor Ron Edmondson of Immanuel Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky, has a confession to make — he shops with his wife. To that end, he recently decided that in an effort to improve and strengthen marriages, he would write down seven tips for wives to get their husbands to shop with them.
"I shop with my wife," Edmondson writes in his blog. "There. I said it. I'm sorry guys. Do I lose my man card?"
Edmondson states that he often gets criticized by other men who say he's put pressure on them to live up to his standard with their own wives. He apologizes and then explains that "a shopping mall is not necessarily my preferred place to be on a Saturday, but I love my wife and I love spending time with her." more >>

(There is always an attempt to de-emphasize the true, spiritual significance of Christian holidays and place emphasis on Santa, toys, bunnies, baskets, and candy. That is a sincere cause for concern. This article assumes that is understood. I respect those who may disagree and who may have a valid pause for concern.)
Every Christmas season, I receive emails such as: "I'm sorry, but every time I tried to watch the sermon the decorated Christmas trees in the background were disturbing to my spirit. I turned it off. I am discouraged and disappointed because of the trees."
Her statement begs the question, "Can we redeem holidays?" Redeem means to recover the ownership of something. Can we, in good faith, redeem Halloween, Christmas, and Easter with their roots saturated in paganism, superstitions, and the occult? more >>

One month after "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" hit theaters across the U.S., two experts added their own viewpoints on how the yuletide season's traditions came to be what they are today.
Cameron's latest film offered moviegoers unique explanations for traditions such as the Christmas tree, the nativity, and even the significance of the 25th of December.; firmly rejecting theories that Christmas was influenced by from paganism.
