To my friends and compatriots of the ‘Campfire!
The Christmas Rifle
I know that this story has been posted here before. I believe I first read it in 02.
But I put it up last year, and was surprised at the number of members, long time members, who had never seen it!
Regardless, it’s one of my favorite stories, although it still plays hell with my allergies. I believe that it captures what we as Christians should practice every day.
God bless each of you with a Merry Christmas and a great New Year!

Thanks for sharing again this Christmas season. Set the story in the early 1940’s and my dad could be Jake Jensen. The kindness of neighbors kept he, my grandmother and his siblings from starving after his father died when he was 5.

Thank You! I was hoping someone would post this again, I’m a bit of a Grinch and this straightens me up.

God Bless and Merry Christmas to you all,
