The weeks leading up to Christmas can be some of the busiest times of the year. With Christmas concerts, plays, sporting events, all mixed in with trying to complete our Christmas shopping and solidify our holiday plans, it can be easy to lose sight of the real reason we celebrate Christmas - the birth of Jesus. Let us take a few moments to reflect on what this means to us:
We thank you for the ultimate gift you gave us
through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of your son, Jesus.
Guide our thoughts and our actions,
so we do not lose sight of the true meaning of the Christmas season.
Bless us so that we may find joy in our hearts and in our lives
and help us to share that joy with those around us.
We ask this in your name,
South Entrance - Mr. Hundeby
