one small grain of precious truth

I’ve been writing my annual newsletter and had a peek at some older ones. Found this bit at the end of my 2008 newsletter, which I felt was worth sharing:

There are quite a few myths around,

there is no fat guy in a red suit dropping presents down chimneys,

the wise men weren’t kings and we don’t know if there were three of them,

Jesus wasn’t born “on Christmas Day in the morning”

(actually he was probably born around October)


in the midst of all these myths,

there is a grain of very important truth

that could so easily be missed

one thing you hear around Christmas is true

Jesus was born to save us from our sins
