I ran into an old friend a couple weeks ago on her visit to Chester.

Many people join a church and never read the book that represents their religion. How many church going Christians have never read the bible cover to cover?

I grew up in the church, kicking and screaming like we all did. I enjoyed making friends, seeing strong role models, and staying out of trouble.

If you wonder why Christmas is on December 25, I’m here to answer that stupid question.

Hanging out on Facebook, I saw a post stating there’s nowhere in the bible saying December 25 is the date Jesus was born. Of course, there were a bunch of responses in agreement, but, just like Facebook, no one shared how and why December 25 came to be. 

Then there’s stupid me asking a co-worker if the 12 days of Christmas start before Christmas or after Christmas. To my surprise, he knew the answer right away. He was so nonchalant with his response, I felt like a complete idiot for asking the question. But, as we all know, there’s no such thing as a stupid question. Right?
