Christmastide is Coming
Dec 18, 2019

Hello, Church Family!

When the sun goes down on December 24, we officially begin Christmastide, twelve days of celebrating the birth of Christ the Savior. We are going to kick it off with a big party at Ecclesia Clear Lake! I hope you can join us at 6:00 p.m. on that night for our annual Christmas Eve candlelight service and celebration. Invite your friends and family to join us as well. Childcare will be provided for children 3 and under. The service will be engaging for children young and old.

Many Christians use the 12 days of Christmas as a time to intentionally reflect on the incarnation, the reality that God became flesh and dwelled among us. This is a 12 day birthday party with a number of feasts intended to build community and deepen the faith. This Christmastide, I will be using a devotional called The Work of Christmas: Twelve Days of Christmas with Howard Thurman. I encourage you to pick up this book or one like it to make the most of Christmastide. See you on the 22nd for our final Sunday of Advent!
