Enjoying Christmas Gatherings…From Scratch
Matthew 2:1-12
 
The first Christmas drew an interesting guest list. Jesus promised that his sacrifice would draw all sorts of people to himself. Our orientation to Christianity should open us up to all people instead of closing us off to a certain, like-minded few.

    Giving Gifts from Scratch
    Matthew 2:1-12
    Gift giving has changed from buying things to "Giving things that truly have great meaning and show great love for the individual." - Cara David
    The Magi gave a gift because they saw who Jesus was. May our gift giving result in our loved ones "being seen" No matter what is given, may it create sacred moments of friendship and love.

    Being Christmas People…From Scratch
    Ezra 3:10-13
     
    The new temple brought an array of responses: crying (it didn't resemble the past) and cheers (it was a sign of potential for the future). Advent is at a similar crossroads. Advent celebrates a birthday by honoring the past without being held captive by nostalgia, we have a chance to imagine a bright future.
     
    Jesus' first appearing brought great hope and profound upheaval. A community shaped by Christmas brings both peace and disruption.
