Did you know that you don’t have to trek downtown into the inner city to scoop soup for the homeless to serve others this Christmas? I mean, that would be great. Totally do that if you want. But there are other ways, smaller ways, that are no less meaningful.
All of us strive to teach our children that Christmas is about more than presents for me – me – me. Jesus, whose birth we celebrate, served. And he told us to serve. Certainly we should be doing this all year long. But we would be remiss to ignore the fact that Christmastime is a season in which many people feel forgotten, lonely, and quite frankly…sad.
