Merry Christmas to all my friends on Earth and beyond.

I’m a science fiction writer. I can hope that people out there like me too.


Now allow me to wax a bit poetic. Christmas is not simply a time for us to get together and enjoy meals with friends and family. It’s not simply a time for us to help Santa bring gifts to all the good boys and girls out there. It is those and more.

It is a time for us to remember that God loved us enough to send his Son to Earth to minister to us in person. It was the greatest gift He could give us.

So in remembrance of that gift, I say to all of you,

Merry Christmas.
