The secular world wants no part of Him, only the good things He has provided. We in the Christian community need to be different. My gifts to Jesus are what I give to the poor. This is all He asks of us--to share the abundance of His gifts to us. And to go out into the world and make disciples for Him. Good writing. God bless you.

You set the scene perfectly. The parallelism between Autumn leaves and old age was brilliant. You also did a very good job of showing how much older people can hurt as the world around them changes and they feel powerless to do anything about it. After such an upbeat debate I was a little disappointed that it ended on a melancholy note. I wonder if there could be a way to have the MC finding some small positive contribution he could make to the decline in the Christ-centredness of Christmas? Just a thought.
