Originally written for Shepherd of the Ridge Lutheran Church, apply these ideas to your local context.
Christmas is almost upon us, but too often, we celebrate God becoming flesh by leaving the malls’ and radios’ music to tell people about Jesus. Yet just today, I heard about a child who doesn’t even know that Christmas has something to do with a baby in a manger. Consider these suggestions to help your friends and family members know why Jesus is the reason for the season.
- Invite them to a Christmas service, and offer to drive.
- Take them to a living nativity. Offer to drive.
- Find other church-sponsored Christmas events: concerts, etc. Offer to drive. (Yes, I’m making a point here.)
- Talk about your favorite Christmas song and why its lyrics speak to you.
