The Potentate’s Message
Es Selamu Aleikum
Greetings Illustrious Sirs and Nobles.
Nobles, I want Ladies to start and off Friends: by saying, “Thank you!” It has been a wonderful and very
humbling year as your Potentate. I am truly honored with your friendship and support
throughout this journey. We have an amazing Nobility and philanthropy that we all
should be proud of.
We had a busy fall season at the Shrine. After our most successful fundraiser, the
Sportsman Raffle (thank you Chairman Joel Franco), we had the Divan Ladies Jewelry
Raffle followed by the 70th Annual Pretzel Bowl. As requested, all hands were on deck
for these events and results were very rewarding. Lady Janet and I were able to host
The Ark Adventure Trip to Kentucky. It was not only a lot of fun and fellowship, but
informative and educational.
A huge thank you to Gary Brown and The Legion of Honor for allowing me to
participate in the wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in
Arlington Cemetery. What an emotionally moving experience - one I will never forget.
There are many Christmas Parties and Ladies Nights that will keep us busy during
the end of the year. Please try to support your Clubs and Units and attend these fun
filled events. Lastly, please have a happy, safe, and healthy holiday season. Take the time to enjoy your
friends and family.
Again…. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Potentate
Yours in the Faith,
ALIEKUM ES SELAM

Another year of transporting patients comes to a close. Many drivers have been transporting several
times per week, and indications are that we may see an increase in transports in the coming months. So
if you have spare time, and are willing to help out, join the Hospital Service Unit. It is very rewarding.
Although the Hospital Service Unit was unable to participate in any of the local holiday parades, our
newly elected president, Noble Ken Flynn, assures us that we will be participating next year. The HSU
float is a great form of local advertising for the Shrine Hospital, Rajah Shrine and our transportation
Noble Ken, our Hospital Ambassador, presented the Pretzel Bowl King and Queen to reign over the
event. A job well done by all.
Our officers have been elected to serve next year. A special thanks to our departing president Noble
Barry Weisser for facilitating our meetings and providing great lunches following the meetings. Also, we do not want to forget
Noble Eric Kissinger who also provided nourishment for the members.
Remember, it’s all about the kids.

LEBANON SHRINE CLUB
We are now headed to the end of a great comeback year at Rajah Shrine. 2020 was horrible and I hope
we never have to face another year like that one. In 2021 we were able to have most of our meetings and
fund-raising events. This was only possible because the Nobles of Rajah Shrine came together and made
these events successful. It sure is noteworthy to say that the 2021 Sportsman’s Raffle was the biggest and
best ever. Once again, the hard work and dedication of the Rajah Shrine was on full display. Let’s keep
the spirit rolling right into 2022.
Here at Lebanon County Shrine Club, we are back to normal, too. We are eating a lot of potpie and
working hard to support Rajah Shrine any way we can, but we are struggling to get Nobles to take club
Dennis Royer offices. There are meetings when our attendance is nothing short of pathetic. I am sure there are other
clubs and units facing the same problems. Lebanon County Shrine Club has been fortunate to have a large
amount of support from the Divan and Past and Present Potentates. And for that a huge thank you. Without their support our Club’s
struggle would be greater. We all need to come together and support each other.
Lebanon County Shrine Club meets the 4th Monday at 6:30 p.m. This has not changed since the Club’s founding in 1949.
We meet at Heisey’s Diner on Rt. 72 north of Lebanon. We no longer send out a newsletter because of cost and delivery issues.
Everyone is welcome and bring your Lady. Questions??? Contact Us. See everyone at the end of the year events at Rajah, and do
not forget the Ceremonial in December
LEHIGH SHRINE CLUB
Nobles, its hard to believe this month is Thanksgiving and shortly thereafter, Christmas! This is the
time of year to remember and be grateful for the many blessings the Great Architect of the Universe has
bestowed upon us. Let us be thankful and pray that He continues to bless us and watch over this great
Our October 6 Stated Meeting was held at the Starlite Diner in Trexlertown. There were 25 Nobles and
Ladies present, including Ill. Sir Kraig W. Leiby, his Lady Janet, four Past Potentates and other members
of the Divan. We enjoyed a delicious meal of soup, salad and pork chops. In lieu of a formal program, the
Potentate spoke about the Gun Raffle and some other upcoming events.
The LSC First Annual Ron Neimeyer Memorial Golf Outing was held on Wednesday, October 13, at
Iron Lakes Country Club. We had 48 golfers, great weather, and a very good buffet lunch. After expenses,
Roger C. Reis
we raised almost $3,400.00 for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. Special thanks to Nobles
Ill. Sir. Wm A. Remo Jr., Ill. Sir. David W. Evans, Paul A. Lizun, Robert Vrancken and President Dennis B Guignet, Sr. for
donations of prizes and helping out. The tentative date for next year’s golf outing is Wednesday, October 12, 2022. All Shriners and
guests are always welcome.
The Stated Meeting for November was on the third. We were able to return to the Brass Rail but were limited to having soup,
cheese steak sandwiches, French fries and pumpkin pie. The Brass Rail is open but serving a very limited menu. Our speaker was
the owner/manager, Mark Sorrentino, who spoke about his background and how he ended up running the family business. He said
the Brass Rail will be relocating next year to a yet-to-be-determined local site.
There were 28 Nobles and Ladies present, including the Potentate and his Lady, four Past Potentates and members of the Divan.
As always, the LSC appreciates their continued support of our Club. Our newest member, Noble Donald B. Houston, was present
with his Lady Joyce for his first meeting with us.
The program consisted of a presentation of the “Order of the Krazy Kamel” to seven Nobles. Experiencing this momentous
event were Ill. Sir Kraig W. Leiby, High Priest and Prophet Donald G. Heimbecker, Oriental Guide Ronald L. Szapacs, Recorder
Les A. Werley, First Ceremonial Master John A. Grumbein, Noble Wm. Grimley and Noble Donald B. Houston. Needless to say,
these Nobles will remember this evening for the rest of their lives. It was a fun evening and very much enjoyed by all.
Our December meeting will be on the third. It is our Annual Christmas Party, held at the Cetronia Fire Company Social Club.
There will be an Ugly Sweater contest.
December 17th will be our Ladies Night, held at the Shepherd Hills Country Club in Wescosville. Contact any officer of our
Club for more information.
Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from our Club to you and yours!
Nobles, remember to support and attend your Clubs and Units. Without active member participation, we WILL cease to exist.
As always, it’s GREAT to be a Shriner!

But for a few hardy fishermen, the season has come to an end. Now we can share our experiences and
adventures and the fish will be bigger and higher in number as time passes by. Unfortunately, we have lost
some great friends who were important members of our club.
As we look toward the end of the year, it’s social events that fill our calendar. Last week at our monthly
meeting we met at Ozgood’s for a dinner with our Ladies. Jim Atkins was our guest and shared with us
things that are going on in the hospital and plans for future events. We now look forward to our holiday
celebrations. especially our Christmas Party/Ladies Night featuring special music by the Chanters.
We can’t forget about our end of the year sauerkraut sale as we have eight barrels to bag and prepare
for sale. We are looking forward to the Ceremonial and the taking in of new Nobles and, who knows, we
might find a new angler or two.
May all of you have a great and safe holiday season and keep in mind our hospital kids as we enjoy the bounty the Lord has

First, we would like to let everyone know that we extend a very sincere and appreciative THANK YOU
to all of those Nobles, Ladies and guests that attended the Provost Guard Spaghetti Dinner on October 9th.
Second, after waiting for over a year, we could finally have our only fund-raiser and, with your support, we
were able to stockpile our treasury so that we can proceed with the important work of the shrine.
Although the Covid-19 pandemic caused the cancellation and postponement of a lot of activities, we
were proud to participate in several of the events that were held. First, the Pote’s Picnic, followed by the
Pretzel Bowl and the Sportsman’s Raffle.
We were proud to represent Rajah Shrine at MASA in Virginia Beach as Ill. Sir Jared Kichline, PP,
moved up the MASA Provost Guard line upon his election and installation to the office of First Lieutenant.
We also assisted the Parade Marshals in the formation of the annual march up Atlantic Avenue on Saturday
and lent a hand at the incoming MASA President’s Pageant on Friday afternoon.
Closer to home, the Provost Guard held our annual Family Picnic in August and we are proceeding with
our Holiday Ladies Night in December.
While we look ahead to 2022, we must take time out to thank our present corps of officers led by President Jon Schneider and
express our appreciation for a job well done during these trying times.
At this point we would like to express our deepest heartfelt gratitude to Ill. Sir Kraig Leiby for his leadership this year. We also
thank our First Lady, Janet for her kindness and support in promoting Rajah Shrine and spreading the joy of belonging to one of the
finest fraternal organizations that exists today.
It also goes without saying, but I will, we would like to thank all of the Divan members of Rajah Shrine for their support and
inspiration throughout this year.
Now, on behalf of President Jon Schneider and all of the officers and members of your Rajah Provost Guard, we would like to
wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR.
LEGION OF HONOR
Give a hearty welcome to the Legion’s newly elected officers for 2021. Also a big “Thank You” to those
continuing in their current office.
Newly elected officers are Commander Fred Olinick,1st V. Commander Ray Ayers, 2nd V. Commander
Ray Kunkel, 3rd V. Commander Richard Ardo, Adjutant Jim Cocuzza, P.C. and Finance Officer Andrew
Congratulations also to our newly elected Divan, with an extra special congratulations to our new
Potentate, Ill. Sir Joseph Hagan, Sr., who was our Legion Commander in 2015.
Due to the pandemic, attendance at our meeting has been poor. We need our current members to become
more active and we need new members. Encourage any veterans you know to join us. In the past, the LOH
has been an active participant in our own events, various Rajah events and those in other Temples’ LOH
activities. COVID-19 was the major culprit causing the decline over the past two years. Things are now
looking up, so encourage those you know who qualify for Legion membership to join in the fun and those
who are members to return to being active.
One of our scheduled events that actually did take place was the Wreath Laying trip to Arlington on Nov 6
& 7. Congratulations to Gary Brown for a well organized event. Every comment I heard was positive. See the article with pictures
on page 20.
Mark your calendars: Stated Meeting & Elections on Dec. 1; Ceremonial on Dec. 11; LOH, Caravaners and Clowns Christmas
Party on Dec. 19 from 12:30 to 5:00;
Rajah’s Annual Meeting on Jan. 5;

being laid at the tomb
LEGION OF HONOR WREATH LAYING
A contingent of members of the Rajah Shrine Legion of Honor from Rajah Shrine
participated in the laying of a wreath honoring those fallen soldiers that are entombed
at the Arlington National Cemetery at the grave of the Unknown Soldier, on Sunday,
November 7th, 2021. It’s a long-standing tradition of many members of the Legion of
Honor to travel to Washington, D.C. on a weekend close to Veterans Day each year to pay
their respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Those participating in the laying of the wreath included: Illustrious Sir Ronald Rapp
a Past Commander of the LOH; Past Commander Barry Weisser; Past Commander Gary
Brown and Illustrious Sir Kraig Leiby.
Ill. Sir Kraig remarked, “This is one of the most solemn and sacred moments you can
witness as the leader of this organization. And this year I am particularly honored to have
been asked to be a part of this touching and moving experience.”

The new Shriners Children’s Doylestown Clinic is now up and running. Launching in December, we
see patients on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Located in the pavilion at Doylestown Health, this office space
is the first opportunity for children and teens to be evaluated and treated outside the Philadelphia Hospital
in its 95-year history.
The goal of the Pavilion office, located approximately one hour from the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital
location, is to create a continuum of care that best serves the needs of patients and families living in
and around the Doylestown area/Upper Bucks County. Philadelphia Shriners Hospital physicians will
see patients, along with Susan Griffith, D.O., and pediatric orthopedist with Bucks County Orthopedic
Specialists, who has also joined our staff.
Some patients from the Doylestown area may still be best served the Philadelphia Hospital’s full
experience where they offer several specialized services such as a motion analysis center or onsite orthotics
and prosthetics department. However, they hope to bridge the gap for some initial, intermittent and followup
care that patients in this area need.
Walk for Love 2021
The Philadelphia hospital just hosted its 7th annual Walk for Love/5k event (in-person) Saturday, October 2, 2021 at the
Philadelphia Zoo. We had over 1350 people register and 900+ people join us in-person on the day of the event. We raised over
$305,000 (our largest amount to date). Thank you to all of the nobles and ladies who supported the event in person or online
Learning to play a musical instrument has been shown to help mental – along with physical – health,
by reducing stress, anxiety and depression. In fact, it has such a profound influence on mood that it can
increase vigor, excitement, and happiness while reducing depression, tension, fatigue, anger and confusion.
Engaging in a creative process such as instrument playing is much like hitting the gym; except you’re
doing it for your brain.
Playing a musical instrument is particularly good as it involves both sides of your brain. While the left
side controls logic, the right side is more about performing creative tasks. Playing an instrument engages
both sides of the brain. As a result, you’re able to remember things better and your memory also strengthens.
One of our bandsmen is facing a difficult challenge in his life.
He has lost the ability to play his instrument and has found that he needs to focus on other
things to keep his brain stimulated. I am talking about our top fund-raising salesman,
Noble Marty P. Ritter, 81, from Allentown. Marty has started his Masonic journey at
Barger Lodge No. 333 in Allentown and was raised as a Master Mason on May 25, 1972.
Next year he will be celebrating 50 years in Masonry. In 1978, Marty joined the Rajah
Concert Band and performed in many ensembles and many concerts and parades with his
I have to circle back to the fact that Marty’s love for the Rajah Concert has been
exemplified by his true salesmanship. Marty has promoted the band’s annual fund-raising
program by selling the most calendars by anyone who has sold them. The band is indebted
to Marty for helping to make the 2021 campaign a success. Marty has lost his ability to
play his clarinet, but he still promotes our band with his talent for sales. I asked Marty what
is the key to his success and he says to “pray every day.” Prayer gives you a connection
to something greater than yourself, which does wonders for your emotional well-being.
It provides a greater sense of
purpose, betters your mood
and helps you cope with and
overcome the difficulties life
brings your way. Besides 43

Greetings from the Rajah Motor Corp!
We were busy with parades this fall but

and the Annual Motor Corp and Oriental

Happy Holidays to all Nobles and their
Greetings from your String Band
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of our dear friend, bassman Bill Bechtel on November
3rd. Keep his wife, Joanne and family in your thoughts and prayers.
The String Band was honored to lead the Efforta Parade in memory
of Randy Leinbach. He was an organizer of the parade and was a
banjo player in the String Band for many years. The band ‘reserved’
his seat on the float (pictured).
The Pine Grove, Columbia, and King Frost Parades all started
with a little rain, but soon cleared up and all went well.
Again, our thanks to Joanne Bechtel and her committee for
organizing the multi-band picnic. A good time was had by all.
We had a great turn out of musicians for all the parades this season. Thank you, guys, for
sharing your time and talents for the kids. Thank you, Chris, for pulling and taking care of the
We would like to welcome aboard banjo player, Eric Kissinger who joined us on the float
As always, there is an open-door invitation for musicians to play in the String Band. If you
play an instrument, come out to a rehearsal on the second Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Complex. If you need to brush up, we’ll help
you get started. Just come with your instrument to rehearsal.
With the support of our Ladies, our purpose is that we might play our instruments so that someday a physically challenged child
may walk and play again.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!

After waiting and waiting for what seemed like an eternity, we performed our first public indoor concert
in 23 months when we sang for the annual recognition dinner at Evergreen Masonic Lodge in Allentown.
An audience of over 100 Masons, Ladies and guests showed their appreciation for live entertainmen,t and
according to many in attendance, it was the first live performance for many of them in nearly two years.
After rehearsing week after week, month after month for the last two years we were happy to shake out the
cobwebs and sing in front of those gathered for the dinner and program.
Notwithstanding, we did lead the audience for the singing of our National Anthem just prior to the
Reading Fightin’ Phils in July and at the Rajah Pretzel Bowl in September. It felt good to see the audience
come alive and show their appreciation at these outings.
Although we appeared in a couple of parades near the end of last year, we participated in several more
this year, including Virginia Beach for the MASA convention, when we brought home the first-place trophy for the Best Chanter
Unit in the line of march.
Making our annual trek to Hamburg for the King Frost Parade, we sang and entertained through the streets and were proud to
receive a second-place trophy for our appearance in their annual celebration just prior to Halloween.
As things slowly get back to a “new normal,” we look forward to singing and entertaining more in the new year. So, if you are
tasked with heading the entertainment committee for your group, just contact us through the Rajah office. We’ll take it from there.
But before we bid adieu to 2021, we still have work to do, including our Ladies Night in December, the new member fall
Ceremonial and a holiday concert for the Anglers.
As this year draws to a close, our President Dwayne Miller and all the Chanters would like to thank our Potentate, Ill. Sir Kraig
Leiby and his Lady Janet for all their support. On behalf of all the members of the Rajah Chanters and our ladies, we would like to
wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy New Year.
Although the year had a
difficult beginning with the virus
still hanging on and many events
being cancelled, things picked
up and Rajah was in full action
mode by spring. The Tin Lizzies
followed that pattern.
Our pie bakes had a late
start but we were underway by
late Februrary. Illustrious Sir
Kraig Leiby attended our first
bake operating the pie press like a pro. Our parade season
began on Memorial Day in Mahanoy City. We gave the
Easton High School Special Needs students a Pizza Party
on June 6. The kids have been labeling our pie boxes now
for going on three years.

Our Annual Clam
Bake took place at
Bady’s Grove on July 10th. MASA was a gas with three Past Potentates driving Tin Lizzie cars
in the parade. We gained three new members from that event also. Welcome Nobles Donald
Heimbecker, Dale Reinert and Dennis Guignet.
Our serious parade season began at Temple in early October with fifteen parades following. A
highlight was our winning the Best Non-Profit Unit in the Easton-Phillipsburg Halloween Parade.
Our Christmas Banquet & Ladies Night will take place on December 11, at the Barn House
Village in Bath, PA.
On a sad note, we lost an original Tin Lizzie recently. Ron Barron had served in all the club
officer positions and was a founding club member. He was one of the most active and dedicated
members, participating in all our events including parades, pie bakes and sales, National Night
Out and Rajah Membership events. He will be missed.
As this is our last article for 2021, we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy
The summer camping season has come to an end, although there are a select few who enjoy winter
camping as well especially the “snow birds” who travel south. The rest of us are tasked with winterizing
our units and putting them in storage until next year.
Caravaners, once again, enjoyed the final campout at the Oasis accompanied by the National Camping
Travelers, Inc. (NCT) campers. The weather not entirely accommodating, but we were able to squeeze out
a campfire and a joint meal with the NCT members. That is always enjoyable.
We held our final meeting for the year and elected our officers for next year. Most of last year’s officers
were re-elected. The exception was our new VP Noble Barry Voigt and newest trustee Noble Carl Willis.
Thank you and best wishes to our Potentate, Ill. Sir Kraig Leiby. And we welcome our new Potentate,
whoever that may be??? We anxiously await the results of the election.
We know it is not the season to be thinking about camping, but it is never too early to plan for a fun filled summer. The
Caravaners are contemplating a tour of New England, with several multi-night stops along the journey. If you do not own your
own rig, you can always rent and join the entourage.
Until next season, be safe, be healthy and be a happy camper. And camp on!
Greetings, fellow Nobles, from the Schuylkill Shrine Club:
Goodbye to summer and hello to fall. The seasons seem to come and go much more quickly than they
did years ago, and sometimes it’s a challenge in trying to keep up. Due to the unexpected seasons of some
of our members we have two officer vacancies, that of Secretary and Treasurer. We are grateful to those
Nobles who served our Club in those positions for many years. If anyone would like to help out our Club,
please contact me. (See contact information at the end of this letter.)
With that being said, we are still having our monthly meetings as scheduled. Our Sports Shirt Night at
the 3C’s Restaurant in Port Clinton took place on September 28. We had our “Cum Essa” dinner at the
Blue Mountain Restaurant in Shartlesville on October 27th. Thurman Medeira and Phil Kister gave an
informative talk on the Lenape Indians. Our November 3rd meeting was Steak Night at the McKeanburg
And talk about changing seasons, our annual Christmas Party will be held at the Rajah Shrine Complex
on Fri., Dec. 10th. Social hour at 6:00 p.m. - meal at 6:30. Kathryn’s Katering will be serving up their
delicious roast beef and baked stuffed chicken as the main entrees. Camel’s milk and soda are included. Other alcoholic drinks are
available for purchase. Music will be provided by DJ Hot Wheels. Cost is $60.00 per couple. Please RSVP by Dec. 3. Your Lady
is encouraged to attend all events with you…and remember to bring your fez. All reservations can be made by contacting me at
610-562-8847 or by email at email@example.com.
It’s great to report we had a good turn out for our Margaritaville Night with the Clowns and Noble
Riders. The event was held to thank our Ladies for supporting their man in 2021 Shrine activities. There
was great food, entertainment and a just plain enjoyable time for all. It was comforting to finally be able
to be a Shriner once again among
other Shriners and their Ladies after
a long shut down of activities.
The unit wants to thank all the
members who participated in and
helped get our vehicles ready for the
Carl Solarek, Halloween and King Frost parades.
They both had huge participation
Secretary and spectator turnout, and they really
showed their support for all the parade
units. It was heart warming to be a Shriner on those occasions.
It was also rewarding to get back to our regular monthly
meetings to plan for the last quarter of the year. The unit has
voted on 2022 Officers and the Director which will be in the
The unit would like to thank the officers who served so
well under difficult times in 2021.
Everyone did a super job to keep the unit informed and
active in 2021. Thank you!
Now, we turn our efforts toward ending the year with the
Ceremonial where we do all the stage setup and tear down.
We need all the members to come out and finish the year as
great as we started with a super effort to meet our goals.
In closing, I want to offer the unit’s prayers to our president
Gerald Mengel and Noble Ed Austin, who are under the
weather and wish them a quick return to the group.

Please be advised that the Annual Meeting of the Nobility of Rajah Shrine

Banquet Hall, Rajah Complex.
The business of the meeting will be to present to the body, discuss and vote,

“APPOINTMENTS ARE FOR ONE YEAR ONLY”
When a Potentate’s term of office expires, all appointments made by him during his
administration TERMINATE, according to the Imperial Code.
Such appointments include ALL appointed Officers, Potentate’s Aides, members of
Committees and their Chairman, Special Appointees, Directors, Assistant Directors, and all
members of the Potentate’s Staff.
Some uniformed Nobles have mistakenly believed or assumed their appointments to be
permanent, NOT SO! Each Potentate when installed in office must make his own appointments.
The Potentate has the power and authority under Imperial Shrine Law to replace every
appointee: or he may, if he believes it to be in the best interest of the Shrine to retain all appointees
Traditionally, for the sake of efficiency, many Nobles of demonstrated ability are continued
in office or appointment by reappointment. But this is at the will and pleasure of the incoming
In no case is he, or can he be bound by his predecessor. By the same token in no case can
any Potentate bind his successor.
If it is the will and pleasure of the incoming Potentate that the Noble is to continue in his
office or position by reappointment he will be notified by the Potentate to that effect.
Should any Noble not holding appointment by the current Potentate wear a Fez carrying any
title such as “Aide” or any other designation he does so in violation of the code.
Some Nobles seek to perpetuate an appointment fictitiously by adding to the lettering on the
Fez the year or years of their appointment. This is a violation of Imperial Law. The offending may
be informed; but “…Ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
THE CHAPLAIN’S STUDY
“Joseph went to be registered in Bethlehem with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was with
child. Mary gave birth to her firstborn and wrapped him in bands of cloth and laid him in a manger,
because there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2:5-7
It must be almost twenty years ago that I first came across an interesting piece of advertising written
by a committed Christian, perhaps you also saw the same billboard. This billboard showed a picture of
jolly ole St. Nicholas and alongside of it was a picture of Jesus. The headline above the two pictures read,
“Whose birthday is it anyway?” It was a very simple yet striking way of getting across the point. I have
heard children answer the question, “Whose birthday is it?” with “Santa Claus.” Not often but every once
in a while, it happens.
Every Christmas, pastors rail against the continued commercialism of Christmas by the secular society.
Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving when so many merchants begin to make more money than the
rest of the entire fiscal year. Black Friday is the day they either make or break their financial year. It is the
time when people seriously begin to buy their gifts for Christmas. I have no problem with merchants making a living at selling gifts,
even selling gifts for Christmas. I have overcome my urge to rail against that any longer, as it is like blowing in the wind. You will
not read that in this letter.
I will take umbrage with the fact that so many Christians have allowed themselves to be so taken up in the whole idea of gift
giving that they forget what the season is really meant to commemorate. This is the birth of the Son of God, Emmanuel, “God With
Us.” When buying gifts and arranging parties and running from one so called “Christmas party” to another so consumes your life,
then you have lost your sight on the goal, celebrating Jesus as God’s gift to us.
Our gifts could never compare to what God has already given to us, so we need not try, however we should be ever mindful of the
needs of others. Remember that while gift giving to family and friends is certainly part of this season, there is also a remembrance
of the gifts we should be returning to God for the gift of his only begotten Son.
The season of Advent is here to be a reminder to us, as well as a guide through the secular world that so easily carries us away
to its whims and wiles. Take the time to worship and celebrate with us here at Trinity and prepare yourself. Prepare yourself for the
true meaning of Christmas, the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, Emmanuel. God’s only Son is born to be our Savior.
