Chris climbing his christmastree. An uplifting tradition.
On Christmas, Jesus, Solstice, Santa, Trees and More. . .Christmas Baby
Chris Highland was born on Christmas Day over a half-century ago. He was an ordained protestant minister for fourteen years and an interfaith chaplain for over twenty. He is a non-theistic freethinker who is not anti-religious. He is critical of nonsensical faith but cheerfully respectful of anyone, faith or no faith, who seeks a reasonable, collaborative way of justice and lovingkindness.
Chris is the author of six nature meditation books, a spiritual autobiography, a novel, a book of reflections on homelessness and a collection of poetry. Selections from his new e-book of essays can be read at Nature is Enough.
He is a teacher, writer and social worker originally climbing trees in Washington State, then in the SF Bay Area. Now he lives, and climbs, in North Carolina.
