Have a Very Moosey Christmas

I just wanted to pass on, to all of you who have joined our community here at the Moose, how thankful I am to have you guys here. This is truly a community, as tight-knit and firm a bond as any. Amazing, in this day and age, with the anonymity of the Internet and the distances separating us, that a group of people could come together the way we have. In that light, I’d like to share a prayer.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the many blessing you have bestowed upon my family and I this Christmas.

Thank you for watching over our family and friends; thank you for offering hope where there was none. Thank you for guiding us in this time of trial and hardship, for our nation and our community here at the Moose.

I humbly ask that you enlighten those who do harm in your name; that you provide understanding and tolerance where it is lacking, and that you protect those who suffer from that lack. Watch over our boys and girls deployed overseas; watch over our leaders and help keep their guidance firm and true; keep our families safe and sound.

In your name we pray. Amen.

Wherever you are this Christmas, and whatever you’re doing, God Bless you all- have a wonderful day.


  1. Give that beautiful little girl a big hug for me and tell her it’s from a Moose who loves her.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful day.  For me Christmas has always been a time for appreciating everyone around me.  While in the past I would have said that it is not a spiritual thing, I’ve come to redefine what that means and now I would say that it very much is.  In the words of one of our Unitarian ministers:

    Spirituality is how you relate to yourself, how you related to those around you, and how you relate to the world.

    In that spirit, I wish you all the best and echo the words of one of our finest founding Mooses:

    how thankful I am to have you guys here.

    Thanks for the gift of your community.
