Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Bearing Drift

Christmas 12 lanternThe reason for the season….

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.” Luke 2:8-20

The true meaning of Christmas … a time for the Christian world to pause and celebrate the birth of the son of God.

As 2018 comes to a close, we at Bearing Drift are thankful for our fourteenth year, and the excellent writers, strategists, and number crunchers, and most especially our readers, who have made Bearing Drift successful throughout the years. Here’s to a great 2019 as we continue to observe, ask question, and write about politics and other interests.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
