We’re nearing Christmas, and a lot of people are thinking and writing about Christmas, Advent, and what the holiday should mean. Fatha Frank is moved to consider what matters most; Jim Schmotzer writes about Advent, again; B.K. McKenzie sings a Christmas song; Maureen Doallas has an epiphany while Sam Van Eman recalls a completely different kind of epiphany. And a lot more.
