As a book reviewer, I’m already receiving books on Christmas, the holidays, and Advent. This is super helpful because it helps to turn my mind and heart to the real reason for the Christmas season before the hecticness of the holidays work to turn my heart toward other things.
My favorite Christmas album: Sojourn’s Advent Songs.
My favorite thing to do at Christmas: be at home with just my boys and my man on Christmas day.
My first Christmas stocking: a pale pink ballerina slipper.
My favorite Christmas book: Song of the Stars
Christmas is all about the incarnation. The incarnation was one of the first acts of Lavish Hospitality. It is when the Creator of the world came to live in the world he made. He gave up his wealth to become poor for us. And in doing so, he welcomed us.
We, as believers, can be such a visible work of the gospel in people’s lives if we welcome them. Welcome them in their brokenness, in their hurting, in their reality. And you know what, people don’t enter our perfectness. They enter our brokenness, our hurting, and our reality.
