If, as an Emerging Man, you think you have something over little children… you are sadly missing an unadulterated well of wisdom.
In 1965 a little comic strip came alive as an animated special… and special it was.
When it was finished the creator Charles M. Schultz wondered, “did we hit the mark?”
If you listen closely to a child, once in awhile, you will hear the true meaning to a plethora of topics.
Christmas is no different.
A good friend, mentor, and brother in Christ, pointed out to me the fact that during his discourse on the passage from the book of Luke, Linus lets go of his security blanket.
The special first aired in 1965… I’ve been watching it since 1969… and this is a new fact for me.
Linus does know the true meaning of Christmas… and instead of a worldly fuzzy, warm item that doesn’t really provide comfort or true security… he is able to put his blanky down and embrace true security.
Again… watch closely… and if you already knew this… why didn’t you say something?
From one Emerging Man to another… by way of The Lion of Judah…
