Meditations on Hanukkah and Christmas

Hanukkah is a celebration that commemorates the victory that restored the Temple in Jerusalem to the Hebrew people about 150 years before the time of Jesus. Part of the story is the miracle of the oil used to keep the flame representing God's presence burning in the Temple. The story resonates with me even though I travel on my spiritual journey in a different tradition.
