Christian Racing's Christmas Outreach

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11 KJV)

With the Christmas season approaching many of us will gather together with our families and friends. To us the Christmas season is filled with home cooked dinners, gifts and a holiday spirit. We as Christians partake in the festive season with the emphasis that we are celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It's the Christmas that Luke wrote about in his gospel.

There is another side of Christmas that is not filled with a festive spirit nor goodwill. It's a side of Christmas that is driven by expectations and met with despair. It's a corporate Christmas filled with a message of Ho Ho Ho and its fueled by multi-million dollar corporations and conglomerates all over the world. In a corporate Christmas there is no mention of "Christ", and there is no message for the lost, the unsaved or the brokenhearted.

I am a paramedic in a busy urban center, who's 911 system responds to tens of thousands of calls per year. I have worked many Christmas days, and I can tell you first hand of the Christmas you don't see on TV. For under privileged families it's a Christmas of depression, as expectations can't be met, for the people in the homeless shelters it's a Christmas of loneliness and regret, and for many it's just another day of misery and circumstance.

But through the Holiday Season it's the children that I think about as they all have an expectation and anticipation over Christmas day. The children haven't driven the corporate Black Friday to Christmas Day machine, nor are they responsible for the all the expectations, that's all adult world stuff. It just breaks my heart to see the disappointment their faces after a corporate world has built this day up so big that how could expectations be met, especially in an under privileged home. It's the younger ones especially; as they don't understand Christmas in an adult world, they just see it through their own eyes is all and you can't fault them for that.

My city is not unique, ask any paramedic from any urban center in North America and you will get the same story. It's all the same only the names will change, but the circumstances will remain a constant sorrow. I can recall last Christmas and the one before, I don't have to think that hard, and I could share many details on the homes that I entered and the people I encountered. The details of one circumstance is not the issue, the issue is that the circumstance repeats and repeats year in and year out.

Christian Racing is more than an online racing league, it's a fellowship, a ministry and an outreach. This is not the first time I have written a Christmas Outreach article, I have done so many times before. Through my eyes I am thinking that taking the time to write this article is making some sort of difference. I guess it is my hope that though we are small as a group we are still able to help. Even if CR can make a difference some where, some way, and some how to one person on Christmas the writing time will be worth it.

There are organizations out there that can do what we can't, as they have the contacts and the resources that we don't; but they need the money to make it work. I have seen firsthand where a charitable organization has intervened and provided a Christmas dinner and wrapped presents for the children delivered right to the door! There are recognized charities in your community who are capable, but they need your financial contribution to be successful.

Christian Racing is asking our alumni, our active drivers and our guests for your participation. Our target is your local bell ringer. You have seen them in the malls and on the street corners. They ring a bell or tambourine with a collection bucket asking for donations from a recognized charity. Christian Racing is asking all our drivers to seek out one of these bell ringers in your community and make a $20.00 donation. This outreach is unique as there will be no documentation, no proof whether you did or didn't respond to this request and there will be no tally on what we donated as a group. It will take time and effort to seek out one of these bell ringers, but your time is part of the gift.

If you are unsuccessful locating a local bell ringer or you find it's getting close to Christmas or you meant to make a donation but time snuck up on you I will suggest the Salvation Army when making a donation there you can enter your zip code as the area the donation will be processed to.

Thank-You
