Church Resources for a “Different Kind of Christmas”
Every year, families pledge to cut back, simplify and have a focused family Christmas that centers more on Jesus and less on commercialism. But year after year, the lull of the advertisement beckons, children submit their wish lists and it becomes easier to repeat the familiar by overspending, overeating and over committing.
United Methodist Communication is providing a non-lectionary sermon series to help congregations cultivate “A Different Kind of Christmas” to touch the community and world with the love of a savior that gave his all for us. The series’ weekly themes include Expect a Miracle, Giving Up on Perfect, Scandalous Love, Christmas Eve: Jesus’ Wish List and By a Different Road. Cokesbury provides accompanying resources including devotions and studies for adults, youth, children and small groups.
