Last night some of my history students showed up at my house singing Christmas carols. For close to a decade, Messiah College history majors have been caroling at the homes of their professors. It is a department tradition. We invite them in, give them some food (brownies and cookies this year), and have some conversation.
If you are in search of hope in these dark times, spend time with some really engaged Christian college students. Our conversation only last about 30 minutes, but we had a great discussion about their experiences in evangelical churches and their attempts to balance critical thinking with membership in their religious communities.
I needed this tonight!
