Classic Christmas Resources

    12.12.21 | Resources

    Many of us are restless for the classic Christmas experience we used to have. We want the traditions and memories, the gifts, and the gatherings the way they used to be.

    But with full calendars, empty store shelves, prices soaring, and empty chairs bringing memories of those lost or who left… will the hustle and bustle of the season only elevate anger, tension, stress, and loneliness?

    With more similarities to today's culture than we realize, the first Christmas set the bar for how we can experience hope in the midst of the Christmas craziness. What’s even better is that this is an opportunity for us to not only experience that hope, but also bring that hope to others.
