2013 Christmas Devotional

12 Dec

We’ve come around again to that special time of year: sparkling lights, music, friends and family, maybe a little snow on the ground, and Bing Crosby on the Pandora station. But the Christmas season also means irritable shoppers, traffic, busy schedules, and for some, a more difficult time of loneliness and stress.

With all of these different perspectives, it can easily feel as if the whole world is missing the point of the season. So this year we’re choosing to re-imagine the Christmas season as an opportunity—a unique chance to live out a different story—and we invite you to join us.

Our 12 Days of Hope Christmas devotional starts this Saturday, December 14. Each day we’ll bring you an opportunity to consider Christmas from a fresh perspective and seek to inspire you to live out the hope that is at the heart of the Christmas story.

There are several ways you can participate this year:

We're excited to walk through this season with you. We're praying that this year you discover in a new way the life-changing hope of Christ's birth.

Merry Christmas!
