“In Christian Science, Christmas stands for the real, the absolute and eternal, — for the things of Spirit, not of matter.”
The Christmas holiday is so commonly associated with shopping, parties, spending and buying, giving and receiving gifts, that the deeper spiritual purpose of the holiday can get easily lost in all the hubbub of holiday preparations. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Christmas is meant to be a celebration of Christ’s coming to save humanity from the shortcomings of the world. It is about discovering our spiritual life at-one with God, finding freedom from all the woes of mortal mind, and seeing the path to eternal Life laid out before us.
Christmas is about getting to know God better. It’s a celebration of Spirit, not matter. May you enjoy the true Spirit of Christmas this year!
