Peace and Justice Christmas Pledge

[To the tune of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas]

Have Yourself a Peace and Justice Christmas

Have yourself a peace and justice Christmas,
Set your heart a-right.
Flee the malls and focus on Christ’s guiding light.

Have yourself a peace and justice Christmas,
Give your time a way.
Share God’s love, And serve “the least of these” today.

Here we are, as we pray for peace,
We’ll live simply and give more.
We care for those far and near to us,
Which brings cheer to us, once more.

God brings down
The haughty from high places,
And lifts up the low.
God cares for the hungry and the humble, so –
Forget the stress and let the peace and justice flow!

We have given Heiffer International "gifts" to our children, and have agreed as an extended family to not exchange adult gifts at our annual Christmas gathering. The children exchange names so there is only one gift per child.

Thanks for the post. I appreciated it very much!

"Keep Christmas with you all through the year." My favorite Christmas song from the Muppets.

My family has loved the John Denver and the Muppets album since I was a little girl.

This year we gave a childless sister in law who said she didn't want anything, although she has sent a huge box for our children, a Kiva gift certificate. When is a gift not a gift? When it's a loan.
