Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Today, we take a break from our typical teaching to focus specifically on our children and pray over their upcoming school year.
Seeing Christ in the Songs of Christmas
One way we always know the Christmas season is here is by the songs on the radio. Around Thanksgiving, radio stations begin playing holiday tunes — some of them around the clock. Some Christmas songs just talk about presents and snow and Santa, but other carols have their origins in the Christian faith and speak boldly to the real reason for the season. In this series, we use Christmas songs as our backdrop to explore the wonderful, amazing and history-shaking birth of Christ — what it meant then and what it still means for us today.
