Ho Ho Ho! There are thirteen shopping days until Christmas. Thanksgiving was a week later this year; it sure made Christmas speed up. I hope you are ready to celebrate fun, family, and laughter. When we were kids this is the time of year we waited for most. As adults we often let the rush of the season sometimes interfere with what really matters.
Whatever happens, don’t let the Christmas Grinch swipe your Christmas joy. Block some time to share with family and friends. And don’t forget to worship with your church family at this special time of year. After all, Jesus really is the reason for the season.
This weekend Journey begins a short three week series, Reclaiming Joy. For the season of Christmas were re-capturing our JOY in the midst of loss and loneliness. Even in the original version of Christmas with Baby Jesus, Joseph and Mary, there were unexpected challenges, twists and turns for their family. We invite you to join us at Journey worship during the season of excitement as we remember the brith of Jesus, Savior of the world.
The human experience brings both laughter and sadness. Jesus's birth proclaims forever that He understands our hearts. He came into our world to make everything right again. Jesus's birth allows every person to discover their real purpose on earth. Our purpose is found in a relationship with Jesus. Christmas is a magical time of year, because God really is for everybody.
Joseph and Mary were told by the angel, not to be afraid, Jesus would be born to save the world. “And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21 NLT
This would be the perfect time of year to invite a friend to join us and celebrate Christmas 2019. Just walk across the room today; extend a friendly greeting. Invite someone still searching for more this Christmas season.
Jesus is the best Christmas gift ever given. For YOU and me and everyone. As the song lyrics say, “I’m just a nobody, telling everybody, about Somebody, who saved my soul.” Join us and bring a guest to our Journey Christmas 2019 series, Reclaiming JOY.
We are better together…. AT CHRISTMAS !!!
