Christmas history for adults at King of Kings
Author Dr. Bruce Forbes, author of "Christmas: A Candid History," will discuss themes from his book beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12, at King of Kings Lutheran Church, 1583 Radio Drive in Woodbury.
The book focuses on the religious and secular history of Christmas from its pre-Christian roots through modern times as well as offering some ideas for reclaiming the joy and meaning of this often frustrating, season.
"It's for people who both love Christmas and are driven crazy by Christmas at the same time and want to understand why that is and what they can do about it," Forbes said.
There is no charge for the event and the community is encouraged to attend. For details, call the church office at (651) 738-3110 or visit www.kingofkingswoodburymn.org.
