Ecclesiastical and political pragmatism, with a beat
Friday, December 31, 2010
Helping the Church of Christ keep the season of the Nativity alive for its constitutionally mandated 12 days are car companies (all those commercials, all those holiday events!) and the good people who live around East Lake in Yorba Linda, who are strenuously encouraged to put up lavish displays by the homeowners association. Several streets adopt themes, such as, for instance, animated mailboxes with Santa letters. Kathy and I didn't notice these until tonight. But how have they been getting their real mail?
