Thanks for the Christmas story

Thank you so much for printing scripture from Luke 2:1-14 on Christmas Day. In these days of being “politically correct,” it’s refreshing to know this newspaper still believes in the real reason for the season, and is not afraid to publish that view. A belated Merry Christmas to you, and please keep up the good work.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
