What Christmas Means to Me Now That I’m Not a Christian

As a child, Gloria was taught to take the “Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus Story” literally. As an adult, for a while,  her perspective widened to such an extent she felt negative about celebrating Christmas at all and she was uncomfortable around those who did. Currently, her perspective is widening even further. Now she finds herself able to fold the metaphor of Christmas into an inclusive view of what it means to step into being whole-heartedly human.
