Christmas Considerations

Posted by Ros Clarke, 6 Dec 2019

Earlier this year we posted a short series of blogposts reflecting on different aspects of Christmas.

Back in January, we posted a series of three blogs looking at different aspects of the way that churches ‘do Christmas’. It seems like a good time to revisit those!

Adam Young warned of the dangers of compromising in areas that we would not normally dream of doing, just because it’s Christmas.

Michael Hayden reflected on ways in which Christians might positively engage with the Santa myth, without confusing our children.

Ros Clarke reminded us that the normal needs of the church family do not disappear - and may even be more urgent - over the Christmas period.
