Let’s CELEBRATE the true reason for the season this year.
Remembering and honoring Christ’s birth sometimes gets pushed to the wayside with all of our holiday festivals, shopping, cookie baking, and family pop-ins. It’s time to start (or restart) family traditions of recounting the story leading up to Jesus’ birth until He is visited by the three wise men.
For those who haven’t carved out enough time to indulge in the Bible’s full offering of this glorious event, we’re going to provide you with some key areas in scripture to seek out a bit more of the story. Enjoy!
