Creating a meaningful new Christmas tradition does not require more money, more time, and more effort. In this modern day of boredom and apathy despite every technology and form of entertainment at our fingertips, let us set it all aside and come away to meet with Jesus to together anticipate the single most glorious birth in the history of all creation.
While I am able to appreciate some of the warm-fuzzies and grandeur that make up this special season, it is filled with transitions, heightened crowds, and an abundance of purely social opportunities ripe for a few meltdowns – kids and parents alike!
This is the one ministry I know of, where the struggle will teach us to more deeply identify with those we serve.
In the Christian life, we are amiss if we are pointing others to the best version of themselves rather than pointing them to God as the Master Planner for their lives because truly, God has a plan for everyone He has created!
Pray for Special Needs Families in your church and/or community who do not know Jesus or do not regularly attend a local church.
To have a good plan, plan alone. To have a great plan, enlist the help of others who share your love and vision for the ministry.
