Well, it’s here… the Christmas season. Carols are being sung, trees are being trimmed, and your calendar is experiencing stretch pains!
Christmas is possibly the busiest season in the life of a church. Parties, parades, musical presentations, and special seasonal services and ministries stretch our time and resources to the max. As a children’s minister we can sometime find ourselves overwhelmed at the added responsibilities that come with the season (How many extra child-care requests do you have to fill this year?)
In the midst of all the business I want to encourage you to take time to celebrate. Find the time, make the time, and insist of celebrating the birth of our Savior.
Bottom Line: The Christmas season is the celebration of our Savior’s birth not a 25 day assault!
What do you do to make sure you celebrate the true meaning of the season?
Great post, Bill! We decorated our “first Christmas Tree” last night, and were reminded to the importance of establishing what we’ll do each year to celebrate Christ’s birth! I enjoy reading Old Testament Promises of the Savior’s coming as a reminder of God’s Faithfulness throughout Scripture and in my own life!
Meredith: Excited for you and your new family! Thanks for the reminder about the OT promises… we often forget that Christmas didn’t begin with the birth of Jesus but all the promises and God’s faithfulness!
