From Bah Humbug to Blessed:

The Life of Christmas Present

Luke 2: 8-15

Scrooge’s transformation begins with a hint of a smile and the sound of a chuckle.  His laughter, and the laughter of others, frees him from sadness and isolation.

Action: How might you cultivate laughter during your Christmas celebration?  How will you let go of worry and live in the present, seeing this moment as God’s good gift, a glimpse of heaven?

Prayer: Gracious God, help us to  let go of our worry and self-loathing, so that we might see today as a gift.  By your Spirit, help us share joy and laughter as a sign of faith and trust in you. Amen.
