I have this term, Hare Christian? It's a way of saying two things at once. Hare Krishna, but philosophically focused on this one particular story, the Christmas story.

So part 1, what's Hare Krishna mean: Krishna is the Hindu respresentation of God's aspect as incarnate here. Hare Krishnas see God everywhere.

Everything is Krishna, everything is "christ." It's a big production number courtesy of God. It's a grand divine magic. The walls are made of christ, the air is christ. God incarnate! You're swimming in it, ba-ba-loo. :D

The Last Temptation of Christ - Satan

So then, from there, why this one incarnation to mention, why Jesus Christ, why is this story told. Why the focus here.

It's about a teaching, friendly, child-loving God. A God who gave everything, who loved his kiddos hard. A God of family and heart, a teacher, not a God of war. A god who forgave, who offers redemption. And a God who asked for our faith, like a little nothing's worth of faith.

God has given us a fancy wrapped gift here, a Merry Christmas, a Happy Easter, a beacon to teach and to build and to love one another as siblings. A guiding star :)

It's not the only amazing thing in God's green universe, but it's a chance to shoot the moon every day of your life, if you really catch the twinkle in the eye.


You start living in an enchanted fantasia this instant, young man!

Or else I'ma pour Cheerios on my head!
