Titanic Concluded or Can We Please Go On to Something Else Now?

Remember those Rocky and Bullwinkle episodes where the title was something like The Literary Moose or…  I’ve Got a Right to Write.

Sorry.  That’s the best I can do this early in the morning.

So where was I?  Oh yes.  Titanic.  I didn’t connect with the characters on a personal level.

So here’s the thing.  This time of year personal can get lost.

We have our Nativity scenes and our decorations and gifts and music and food and candlelight services and we get so wrapped up in the activities that we never get personal.  We get focused on the activities and overlook the purpose, the reason for the season.

Actually that can be the problem all year long.  We have our doctrines and denominations and our worship styles and order of service and, yes, our lists of bad sins and ,well, not so bad sins and we miss the connection, the personal.

So we all, me included, need to quiet ourselves and find Him in all the clutter, to be aware the personal connection to Jesus.

After all that’s why He came.

A personal Merry Christmas to all.

‘You know you could’ve done this in one post or at most two.’

I know.

‘Why didn’t you?’

I don’t know.

About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.
