REFLECT – Merry Christmas! Did you know we, the church, celebrate Christmas Day for 8 days? Are you aware the 12 Days of Christmas is more than an amusing song? Twelve days mark the time from Christmas to the Epiphany. Does it surprise you that the Christmas season extends until the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple on February 2nd ? While some people are rushing back to the stores for more sales and others are back to the same old routine, the church invites us to take a significant time to celebrate. This celebration is laden with awe, rejoicing and pondering because God-is- with-us. God’s love is made tangible in the child Jesus.
SHARE – Continue wishing people a Merry Christmas or a Blessed Christmas season until February 2nd . When someone looks at you strangely because it’s past December 25th have the courageous, contagious kindness to invite them to celebrate Christmas until February 2nd too. Emmanuel! God-is- with-us!
PRAY – We want to invite you to pray the Litany of Trust with us at the beginning and end of each day. Click here to download the litany.
