Vintage Christmas

Often we look back on events with hazy remembrances especially at Christmas. This series will (gently!) expose some of the more common ways we can get off track and what we can do instead to capture the joy and hope that Christ’s birth brings.

During the holidays, many of us strive to take the perfect family photo, write award winning Christmas letters, and overindulge in gifts that are well above our means. The image that we present to others is often very different from our true circumstances. Imagine what it would look like if we shared our real stories with others. What if being humble and real opened us and others up to experience the hope and joy of Christmas in a brand new way? What if the gift we give and receive is Jesus?
