Read through Luke 2:1-21. Invite someone over for dinner. Reach out to a neighbor who is alone. Pray for the peace, love, and mercy of the Jesus Christ to be known throughout the world.
From Advent Conspiracy: Making Christmas Meaningful Again by Rick McKinley, Chris Seay, and Greg Holder
“Like Mary, we will sing to our redeeming God. Like Elizabeth, we will open our lives and homes to others. Like Joseph, we will obey without regard to the cost. Like the shepherds, we will leave our busyness to worship Christ. Like the Magi, we will confront anything that stands in the way of our worship–from worldly empires to our own fears.
We will celebrate, sing, dance, pray, meditate, and love our way into a story that is of great joy for all people. Christmas changed the world the day Jesus was born in a cold, dark stable; Christmas will change the world again.”
Today’s Scripture Passage
