Word to slaves: "We have some good news and some bad news. The good news tomorrow is Christmas. The bad news is today we are selling you down the river." I wonder who got a slave for Christmas?
A daughter at ten years old was appalled when apprised of this bit of family history. A teachable moment: "It ain't your roots, it your fruits. Never mind what crime they did 150 years ago, what's the crime, perfectly legal, even expected, you might do today without a second thought?"

God is Love. Without free will, there can be no love. There is the rub: with free will, we can do anything, good or bad. The Christmas story is God intervened, given our choices.
What crime, perfect legal, are we doing that requires divine intervention?
