“When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.’  So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby who was lying in the manger.  When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.”  (Luke 2:15-18)

I love this part of the Christma...

I love this time of year.  Not because of time with family, though I love them dearly.  Not because of gift giving and trappings, though those are incredibly fun.  Not even because of all the fun and beautiful music that is played only seasonally.  I love this time of year because God always seems to use it as an opportunity to reawaken my heart.

My heart comes alive because the fullness Jesus and all He is and has done comes clearly into focus.  The reality that God shaped all of...

As Darryl speaks on the “Gifts of Christmas” we cannot ignore the practical ways we introduce the Christmas story to our families. 

The importance of family traditions can’t be understated.  Take a moment (yes, actually take a moment and reflect) and think about your family traditions of years gone by.  When you were a kid:  What did you ALWAYS do for Christmas?  What ways did the Christmas Narrative get center stage in your celebrations?

For my family as a kid, we always read the L...

“In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David.  The virgin’s name was Mary.  The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored!  The Lord is with you.’  Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.  But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.  You will be with child and give birth t...
