Thanking Through Christmas Teaching Series Begins November 25 & 26
November 26 @ 9:15 am - 12:30 pm
SATURDAYS, 6PM | SUNDAYS 9:15AM & 11AM. As soon as Halloween is over, even sometimes before it is over, retail stores change their displays to Christmas. Every year it is a shock to our system. Christmas already? What happened to Thanksgiving? This year, instead of treating Thanksgiving as the speed bump before the main event, we want to extend being thankfulness through Christmas.
We are called to give thanks in all circumstances. This is no more evident than the Christmas story. Nothing about the Christmas story is ideal. An ordinary, young couple, with a (somewhat) scandalous story, sent out of town, unable to find a place to have their first child. Maybe our holiday plans aren’t going to plan. Even worse, maybe our life isn’t going to plan. How can we rejoice in the middle of chaos? Rejoice in the middle of instability, uncertainty, and confusion? The Christmas story reminds us of how we can be thankful in all circumstances.
