Be Christ in Christmas
 
"If we really believe Christ is the reason for the season, we shouldn't force people to say it. It should be evident in our lives." Rev Rachel Held Good folks of North Highland UMC, I encourage all of us to focus on being the joy and good news in this beautiful season, Here are some ways we might BE Christ in Christmas:
Take time for real and sincere worship.
Read the Christmas story with family or alone, more than once.
Give gifts that will improve relationships, not just add to clutter.
Shop Fair Trade (Equal Exchange/Ten Thousand Villages & more).
Offer your time to someone who is alone or struggling.
Send a note to someone you haven’t heard from in a while.
Remind your face that you have the joy of the season within you (smile).
Bite your tongue; walk away from hot button issues.
Re-acquaint yourself with moments of silence and awe.
Wishing a blessed Christmas to all,
 
Pastor Lou
