Are Traditions Important to You by Barbara Lighthizer

The patterns we set for our daily lives are part of the process by which our children learn about godly family living. We may think that traditions are important only for the main events and holidays, such as Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and birthdays. However, we form a habit of doing something consistently in many areas of life.

Asking Why

What are You Waiting For by Kim Martinez

In the traditional Christian calendar, the four Sundays leading up to Christmas are called "Advent." For many people, the traditions of Advent are not well understood by most Christians. However, there are things we can learn from those traditions. The focus is anticipation. Each year, we reflect on whether we anticipate that Jesus is at work - that He is showing up - in our everyday lives.

The Fruit of Personal Rightness with God by Dave Arnold

Peace is not a detached creation, unrelated to everything else. Peace is bound up with other things, and is entirely dependent on them. Peace is the fruit of certain relations, and if those relations are secured, peace is inevitable.

Christmas Gifts

Down to Earth Christmas by David Rose

Indeed, too many people try to complicate Christmas. They analyze the true meaning of the Wise Men and the theological arguments supporting where the East really is. The actual story is rather simple, yet the wisest student will never uncover all of the hidden truths. Soft as a quiet daybreak, as beautiful as a rose in full bloom, Christmas enters. As hopeful as a new day, as stunning as a sunrise, Christmas dawns. Not a Hollywood concept at all.

January 2017 Theme: New Beginnings

Advent

Sending and Sent by Scott Hassett

As Jesus stood on the hill that day, His command to "Go" still fresh from His lips in the ears of His followers, He saw in them not as a disparate group of individuals but rather the nascent beginnings of something the world had never seen: a Body of people that would be unified by the Holy Spirit, each part supplying to the whole, senders and sent working together to fulfill His commission to them and turning the world upside down indeed.
