‘Cancer: My Journey in Time
Christmas, a time of creativity

The time is here. It’s Christmas time! The hustle, the bustle, the shopping, the pondering, hoping you haven’t forgotten someone while trying to actually include everyone. But how is that possible? Who do I buy for and who will be left out? There is never anyone ‘left out’ when we choose to pray and consider what the holiday season represents. No matter what is going on with purchasing, the real price was paid when Jesus gave his life so that we could live.

Rev. Enoch Fuzz

Rev. Enoch Fuzz, pastor of Corinthian Baptist Church, continues to mix sharing this busy holiday season with great cheer and invitations of good will with doctor appointments and treatments that keep him moving forward in his journey with stage four lung cancer. Last week consisted of an invitation to the Davidson County District Attorney General Glen Funk’s Christmas Party Luncheon in the Ben West Building. Funk noted that this was the first time that all members of the judges, attorneys and pastors who lead programs that coincide with the works of the courts were all invited to be together for such a function as this. It was well-attended and accepted as everyone enjoyed a catered meal, music and Santa. They came through mostly during their lunch hour.

The week also included new and slightly used designer items on sale at a Christmas Bazaar at Corinthian Church one day, and then on the weekend with the distribution of gifts for children. Children on a ‘secret Santa list’ were given a toy brought to the car by Santa himself! The week ended December 19 with a Christmas sermon from Bishop James A. Jennings of Detroit, Michigan at the Sunday service.

As this year comes to a close, people are finding more and more creative ways to be supportive and ‘Christ-like.’ Yet, there are still many others that find a way to increase violence and mean-spirited behavior. It’s Christmas, the time of the year that is at first thought, about a baby—the birth of the baby Jesus. And as the story goes, the baby was not born in the best of conditions following a long journey for his mother, Mary, and father, Joseph.

While that is how their journey unfolded, we continue to pray and see the great gifts that come from the journey of Rev. Fuzz. We thank God and continue in prayer for giving and sacrificing, so that others may experience the joy of Christmas and the joy of living every day.

You’re invited to read next week when Pastor Fuzz will share more creative holiday contributions that were done to celebrate the joy of giving.

Thank you for your gift of prayers for Rev. Fuzz. He continues to pray for you because you are a part of his journey. Visit his Facebook site where you will find him sharing his concerns, praise in pictures, testimony and song. As we continue to follow God’s guide, keep following his weekly journey, ‘Cancer: My Journey in Time.’ Thanks for continuing to read and share this journey. May it add a blessing to your life.
