Christmas suggestions

LINCOLN, England--For tips on how to talk inoffensively about Christmas with relatives who do not observe the holiday, see a back issue of Outreach Newsletter, published by the Churches of God UK (an affiliate of the Churches of God Outreach Ministries).

"Well ahead of the 25th [of December] we need to gently put down a marker to relatives, friends and colleagues that we 'don't do Christmas,'" writes editor and pastor James McBride.

Yet "we should not, of course, be confrontational. Ways and means can be found of avoiding conflict in our own circumstances. Nor need we go overboard in our opposition. You can still accompany the family to see the often spectacular switch-on of Christmas town centre lights, or a pantomime."
