Halford E. LuccockHalford Edward Luccock (1885–1960) was a prominent American Methodist minister and professor of homiletics at Yale Divinity School.
His statements in his sermon "Keeping Life Out of Confusion", at the Riverside Church in New York City on 11 September 1938, have been widely quoted. He declared:
This was reported the next day in an article headlined "Disguised Fascism Seen As A Menace" in ''The New York Times''.
Other long quoted remarks on the significance of Christmas occurred in his earlier 1915 essay "Everything Upside Down". He later elaborated upon this work in an extended adaptation, "Whoops! It’s Christmas" in 1959, which was published in ''The Abbott Christmas Book'' in 1960.
He wrote a column in ''The Christian Century'' for many years under the pseudonym "Simeon Stylites". Provided by Wikipedia
