Ya casi es Navidad. Una se pregunta ¿qué significa la Navidad para la humanidad de hoy. Esta fiesta que inspiró al Redentor del Cielo para dar al hombre una oportunidad de salvarse, entrando con Él en el Reino eterno donde todo deseo es colmado?

En este, nuestro mundo donde hemos forjado una mentalidad utilitarista e individualista bajo la cual: “sólo me interesa aquello que necesito o me satisface”, es difícil comprender a un Dios que se hace infante y nace como cualquier otro, pero en una renuncia suprema a la comodidad y al bienestar personal, eligiendo la precariedad y la falta de medios económicos como compañeros en el viaje de su corta vida como Salvador del mundo.
Pocos han entendido qué es lo que le espera al hombre después de esta vida. Cielo o Infierno parecen ser los únicos destinos a los que se puede optar después de la sepultura, destinos irrevocables y terribles, el uno para bien y el otro para un suplicio que no acaba. Y es que el hombre fue llamado por Dios para ser como Jesús y cumplir con sus obligaciones de criatura de la divinidad para poder luego, merecer el premio sempiterno. Sin embargo, éste se desvía hacia lo fácil, y no quiere negarse nada, entrando así en una espiral que le hace cada vez más incompetente para alcanzar la vida de hijo de Dios.
Esta noche, las luces y los adornos en las calles y comercios del mundo entero conmemorativos de la Navidad pasarán con ella, como han pasado todas las anteriores desde la primera, y después vendrán más. Ojalá 2017 marque un hito para muchos de nosotros: el de nacer a una nueva vida que deje de lado las concupiscencias que nos atan  y nos privan de la verdadera libertad, para que podamos elevarnos hacia las aspiraciones más altas como seres humanos; para que podamos caminar con Jesús que nace en el Belén de todos los corazones que le acogen y que saben obedecer su doctrina sencilla pero, a la vez, poderosa para salvar a todos los que lo buscan: un Evangelio que a todos nos llama hoy.
Feliz Navidad!

Dogwood Arts Working Towards 10,000 Trees in 10 Years


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Once again, Dogwood Arts encourages Knoxville to take part in the community-wide dogwood tree-planting day on Saturday, December 3rd.  As part of the Bazillion Blooms program, Dogwood Arts asks Knoxville communities to keep their neighborhoods and communities beautiful for years to come by planting not only dogwood trees, but flowering trees and shrubs, bulbs, and perennials during the Fall gardening season. Fall planting allows plants to develop a strong root system over the winter months, so they are strong for upcoming summer heat.

Since the inception of the Bazillion Blooms program in 2009, Dogwood Arts has been working towards a goal of planting 10,000 new trees in the Knoxville community in 10 years. Dogwood Arts is selling disease-resistant dogwood trees at dogwoodarts.com or by phone at (865) 637-4561 through November 18th. These 3’ – 4’ bare-root trees are available for $25 each or five [5] for $100.


Trees ordered from Dogwood Arts must be picked up on Saturday, December 3, from 9:00am to 12:00pm at the UT Gardens off Neyland Drive.  Trees will not be distributed at a later time or date.
