Families: Ordained of God

Merry Christmas from Brad Kramer

Just a quick post to wish everyone a very happy Christmas. Whether you’re in Utah or in the mission field, thanks for reading BCC and being part of the crowd. Many of you will spend this holiday with your families: others will not. Still others will wish they weren’t with their families.

The part of the Proclamation that rings out true and clear to me most of all is that families are ordained of God. I believe in the love, trials and blessings of relatives. This Christmas, I’d like to extend a warm cup of cheer to you and your kin. May Father Christmas bring you a wonderful time with you and your family this season. Of course there is heated debate over the impact that same-sex marriage will have on the family, but I’m putting that aside (at least until Boxing Day) to say simply that it’s wonderful to love and to be loved and I wish it for all of you, wherever you are.

Merry Christmas!

  4. May the peace and joy of Jesus Christ be with all this season. My love and thanks to all who participate in this crazy enterprise we call By Common Consent.

  5. Not sure where to request this, but I’d love to know which were the top ten most viewed/commented articles on BCC in 2013.

  6. Merry Christmas to all of you!
