Our four-year-old granddaughter enjoyed retelling the Christmas story. So did I – until it took an unexpected turn.
Recognizing the many gifts we receive from God, we return thanks by sharing our gifts with others.
We are blessed to serve a God who loves us, and who teaches us to love by giving us rules to follow.
The exhortation to “love your neighbor” appears all over Scripture – but it isn’t always easy to fulfill.
The Bible teaches us to praise God – not because God needs our praise, but because we need to offer it.
We love Christmas because we love Jesus!
A revised version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” carol guides a new devotional for the season.
Feasting is not the same as gluttony. In fact, thoughtful, Christian feasting is in many ways gluttony’s opposite.
Since we became Episcopalian, the way I bring the season into my home has become even more fun and meaningful.
Celebrating Christmas for all twelve days helped our family – first, after a divorce, and now, with our grandchildren.
