We hope that your feasting, resting and serving brings many different opportunities to glorify the Lord and grow in him. We hope that God’s people around the world take every opportunity possible this Christmas to share the good news of Jesus with friends and family. We hope that there are lots of warm and welcoming parties and feasts, where we get to receive the things that God has made with thankfulness and share with others. We hope you get some slow time too, sometime over the next twelve days, to sit quietly on your own or with friends, and marvel at the incarnation.
Our collection of resources to help you celebrate continues today with a fresh array of scripture, music and writing. Our first new Christmas poem is published today too: ‘The First Breath In’ by Joanna Hayes. Read the first known Christmas sermon (it’s not very long!) or unwind at the end of a full day to Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.
However you celebrate the First Day of Christmas, remember to share it with others. And please don’t limit that to social media – share your Christmas celebrations in person, face to face, with the people around you!
