Charlie Brown’s Christmas miracle

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the whole Peanuts gang have been my favorites since childhood. But it should be noted that Charles M. Schulz in later years called himself a “secular humanist,” which is a concern to many.
    —Jeff Martin / Bellefonte, Pa.

A lot has been written about Schulz’s religious beliefs, but we’ll never truly know until heaven. I am grateful for A Charlie Brown Christmas and its effect on our world and society—even all these years later.
    —Scott Alan Blanchard / Washington, Mich.

With A Charlie Brown Christmas no longer ­available on network TV, Linus may never again have the national spotlight he held for 50-some years to share the Good News with a nation that needs it more than ever.
    —Robert True / Sedalia, Colo.

My favorite part of the Peanuts special is when Linus drops his security blanket just as he recites the angel’s declaration, “Fear not.”
    —Kristofer Sandlund / Zanesville, Ohio

Kudos to Mark Fredrickson for his cover illustration ­capturing the sheer joy and wonder on Linus’ face as he proclaims the meaning of Christmas to Charlie Brown—and to the world.
    —Don Barber / Newfields, N.H.

Shad White is watching

We hear so much about pork and wasting taxpayer money, so it was a joy to read Kim Henderson’s ­article about someone doing something about it.
    —Kelley Burgess / Anna, Texas

We pray that more state and county auditors will follow Shad White’s example in bringing justice to our ­government. We also pray for more Christians to step forward and be brave enough to engage in government.
    —Daniel & Cheri O’Donnell / Grants Pass, Ore.

Poinsettias and Christmas trees

I believe WORLD can do better on its Children’s Books page. I can go to the local library for “holiday books,” but we need more, rather than fewer, recommendations for books that sing of the Savior.
    —Janie-Sue Wertheim / Walnut Creek, Calif.

Cold dark days

I was shocked that there was no mention of European energy policies in this ­article. Most European governments have embraced their new religion of green energy and are now paying the consequences.
    —Kathy Connors / Medina, Wash.

Folding our tent

I, too, am at the age where I am over the pride of youth, the pursuit of earthly pleasures and wealth, and ­looking to the time when I’ll fold my “tent.” The memories of friends and what we’ve done with our lives for the Lord, not what we’ve accomplished, will be the treasures.
    —Trent Landenberger / Apex, N.C.

The Lord moved my wife and me from our home of 28 years back in 2016. Seven years on, it is abundantly clear it was the Lord who choreographed it all.
    —Roy J. Jaeger / Bainbridge, Ga.

Well, I hope you’re happy, Janie B. Cheaney. You just made a grown man cry.
    —Joe Martin / Asheville, N.C.
