To put Christmas back into the holiday season, tens of thousands of Christians will be wearing buttons that read, “It’s OK, Wish Me A Merry Christmas.” More than 200,000 of the buttons have been distributed nationally as part of a campaign to influence retailers not to be silent with saying “Christmas.”
“The Blind Side” is a beautiful new film based on a magnificent and heartwarming true story. But I hope that the many who see it do not simply walk out all aglow. It should also produce concern. This story about hopelessness transformed into achievement should be a typically American story–but is increasingly NOT the case.
