Orthodox Christmas is Monday

Many Orthodox Christians will celebrate Christmas on Monday.

Most churches worldwide use the calendar introduced by Roman Catholic Pope Gregory in the 15th century in which Christmas is observed Dec. 25. However, there are Orthodox churches that follow the Julian calendar, which observes Christmas on Jan. 7.


“Red Letter Revolution” by Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo (Thomas Nelson, $22.99).

From the publisher: Speakers and authors Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo aren't afraid to talk openly and candidly about Jesus' teachings in Scripture and how they give Christians a road map for living out their faith in a fractured world. In their new book, they're calling the public to re-imagine the world and the way we live — the old patterns of politics, economics and religion that aren't working — and urging them to embrace a new kind of Christianity.

And it's their hope that those outside of the church, who may have been hurt by or suspicious of faith, will witness truths that the human frailty and imperfections of Christians often contradict.
