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 and Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

    Is it possible to use one of the Baby Jesus images from your site for our congregation’s Christmas Card.

    • The Nature photos are mine and we can discuss sharing, and I’d love to say I took those pictures of The Baby or made them myself (!) but most are just “borrowed” from Google Images or elsewhere. All the best to you.
