If you have been with us for a while you know how much I love Christmas (sights, sounds, smells, foods, fellowship, worship, etc.). In light of this Advent season, here are some links to encourage your worship:
I am guessing most of you know people who are always angry at the secularization of the holidays. Kevin DeYoung writes wisely on a better response than anger in an article titled, “Christmas is Not For Cranks.” PS – Here too is a brief comic that shows something similar:http://adam4d.com/xmas/
I really like Noel Piper’s book on traditions (Treasuring God in Our Traditions), and appreciate her wisdom in this article in which she discusses how we celebrate Christmas when others have less of a Christian focus. It’s called, “When Grandma and Grandpa Don’t Celebrate Like We Do.”
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. God Bless.
By His Grace and For His Glory,
