"Why do we have Christmas trees?"

An article from Christian History

It closes with the following:
As many of us make trees and gifts the center of our own Christmas practice, we would do well to remember that they are ultimately symbols of the One who gave himself to unite heaven and earth, and who brings all barren things to flower.

Hello! I have just read The Shack. Have you read this book? If so, please let me know your opinion.

I have not read The Shack yet. I expect to read it at some point. I will probably get it after Christmas and read it then. I expect to be intrigued, even if I disagree with it.
