A Blast From Christmas Past

Dearest Readers,

The Raven Flock is flying the coop this Christmas season as we celebrate the arrival of Jesus with family and friends. We will return – refreshed, renewed, and ready to continue promoting peace and justice through the mimetic theory of René Girard (whose birthday we will also remember on Christmas Day!) – on January 7th.

In the meantime, enjoy these articles from Christmas past, and we will see you in the new year!

Peace, Blessed Advent, and Merry Christmas!

Naughty? Or nice? The Raven Flock has seen Santa in different ways. First, in The Monstrosity of Santa, Adam Ericksen points out that the recognition that we are all naughty and nice sometimes and need unconditional love regardless of our behavior is important wisdom this holiday season. Then, in Praying Santa, Suzanne Ross gives some beautiful advice on how to make Santa a truly special and loving model for children.
