REFLECTION FOR THE WEEK
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.
