As you may know, most of my life I’ve been a Scrooge about Christmas. While I still sometimes struggle with that, I’m a lot better. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I’m growing in Christ, maybe Anna’s Christmas spirit is transforming me or it could be that I’m no longer a pastor with all the work a pastor has to do at Christmas.

Here’s our recipe for Christmas cheer. Take an old Scrooge, a mental DJ, two young preachers and Miss Christmas Spirit. Add some microphones and mix them all together with no plan whatsoever. Voila! It’s the Steve Brown, Etc. Christmas special.

Is It Finished for Our Relationships?

By: Shari Thomas on Saturday December 20, 2014


I love Christmas in the City! That is, until I begin to think of where everyone is going to sleep. This isn’t the hardest part of apartment living though. It’s the clutter, the small spaces, the noise and lack of privacy. Combining these with the typical familial dynamics most of us experience during the holidays, it could be a recipe for disaster.

Watch this video series from Pete Alwinson and you’ll see that part of what made Jesus so great is that he gives his greatness to anyone who wants it. Now, that’s one heck of a Christmas present!

Do you sometimes have trouble deciding between what is important and what isn’t? I think I could make that decision if everybody would just leave me alone…but they won’t.

Dance of the Dirty, Rotten Sinners - Chad West

God forgave us so that our sin is no longer the issue. We no longer have the demand of impossible rules to earn the favor of God, it was given to us freely by Christ. So what makes us so prideful? Is it because we can’t accept that it’s all free? Is it because we feel better thinking we’ve contributed? Believing spirituality is as easy as wearing nice things to a church service.

I suspect that, if the innkeeper had known the whole story, he would have made room in his inn. If he was savvy in marketing, he could have made a buck or two on it. If he really knew, he could have created a “Jesus Suite” and advertised it in the newspapers…maybe even put up a bronze plaque that read: “Jesus was born here.”
