I will not start packing up the decorations today.
Carrying Christmas With Us: Prayer Cards for All Twelve Days
Households may be in a rhythm of setting aside extra space for God during the season of Advent and so these cards are an easy way to extend that space during the season of Christmas.
My younger daughter was being particular for Christmas: Mandarin skin cream from Aesop, a small facial boutique shop on Lido Isle.
The God of Light, of Love
John, for me, is the apostle of light, the apostle who shines the light on the true nature of our God and our Lord and Savior.

I first learned of Stephen, as I suspect many of us do, via Wenceslas and his walk over deep, crisp, and even snow. In that lovely song, Stephen serves largely as the backdrop for an allegory about kingship.
Come and worship….
Worship has been much on my mind recently, not necessarily the liturgy or the music or whether to be online or in person for Christmas services, but mostly I’ve been pondering the innate human need to worship, and its various manifestations.

Merry Christmas, friends. For our household, this morning feels like we’ve finally reached the finish line of the most grueling ultramarathon race in history. Today we are putting aside the hallmarks of our 2020: anxiety, despair, and decision fatigue, so we can make room for twelve full days of joy and Jesus.
