abgadi, and thank you all for being here. really appreciate it, and happy holidays to all three of you. >> thank you. >> as we sit here on this christmas morning and as we head into night two of hanukkah, i wonder what you would like our viewers to be contemplating. let me start with you dr. jones. >> well, you're right. it's been such a divisive, violent, troubling year. and as we walk into the holidays, it's not as if all that's gone away. and here we are getting ready to celebrate, and what does it mean to celebrate in the midst of that. i'm always reminded as a christian as we go into christmas that it happens on december 25th not because jesus was born on december 25th, but because it's a celebration of ancient rhythms that had to do with light coming into the darkness of wirnnter, and the original story of christmas could be a story surrounded by
the headlines of today. it is a story of two parents, unwed mother, they are displaced, they are refugees, and they are immigrants, literally who don't have any papers, and they are told by the state that they have to go to a city to register to be legal. and they get on their horse, and they travel far, far from the people they know. and they end up in a barn. not because barns are, like, nice, romantic places to have babies like we like to do in our kreshs, but because they can't find any other place to sleep. i mean, it is a desperate moment for these two people. she is having a baby in hay, and yet, in the hay, surrounded by animals with strange people all around them that they don't know, who have come to be friends,this baby comes into the world. and cries, and life.
not just for joseph and mary and the people there, but in the story, it's the cry of life for all people. it's an incredible story. >> it is indeed. rab rabbi, what would you like people to be contemn plati conte head >> thanks, dan. i think hanukkah speaks to us with similar intent. in three ways. first, i would say that it reminds each of us who are religious, ethnic racial minorities in this country that we ought to celebrate our uniqueness. second, it reminds all of us that groups can lift up what makes them different from others and still be committed to the values that are america. and finally, in this time of darkening days, and in the world which is dark with trouble, and the country divided, it reminds
us that darkness can be dispelled by a single flame, and that each of us has the opportunity to be that flame to stand up for justice, and what's right and make the worlds better for our place in it. >> and we're hearing a lot about the troubles in the world right now. what role do you think faith can play to heal these wounds? >> thank you for bringing me over here. and i see faith as the only solution for every single person. when we see that all the doors are closed, it's only darkness, killing everywhere, and depression starts playing a big role in our life, people even start committing suicide. the only way for you is to get back to god and ask for help. and he is the only one who is going to be able to help you. people of faith, when they
inspire people with this, they can definitely help them. you just mentioned what's happening right now in syria. there is no other way, but only believing in god that there is tomorrow will be better. although you may not see it in that what ay, but we have hope god to change anything at any moment in time. and i'll take the chance, especially talking about the birth of jesus, and we believe, and it's mentioned born in a miraculous way. god is able to do miracles. god will do what he wants at any moment. we do have that hope in god that, yes, he's able to do it but we also have to be a part of it. >> i want to thank all three of you for joining us. i'll send it over now to diane. thanks, dan. we're celebrating our tenth annual warm coats warm hearts drive partnered by burlington. and k.i.d.s. fashion delivers.
