1[If he could people to change one thing, what it would be] I'd get them to stop believing everything they think. We lie to ourselves more than anybody else. Jesus said the truth will set you free - but first it makes you miserable.
2I'm not opposed to the party part of Christmas. Actually I think the three purposes of Christmas Tare found in the three statements we get in the first Christmas. The angel says, 'I bring you good news of great joy. Unto you is born this day a Saviour. And peace on earth, goodwill toward men'. I call this celebration, salvation and reconciliation. Christmas is a party. You gotta party.
3[on the tragic death of his youngest son] I'm thankful that God sees all I go through. He cares. He grieves with me. I'm thankful that even though I don't have all the answers, God does. I'm thankful that God can bring good even out of the bad in my life, when I give him the pieces. It's his specialty. God loves to turn crucifixions into resurrections.
