Journey to Christmas

How do you normally ‘do’ Christmas? Do you write lists, organise your schedule and buy all the food and presents well ahead of time? Or do you dive into the last-minute scrap in the supermarkets and shopping centres on Christmas Eve? However you handle the fun and festivities, this Christmas we want to invite you to join us on our adventure through Christmas. This booklet includes a reflection from Our Daily Bread for each day of December leading up to, and including, Christmas Day. Why not make space to step back from the frantic busyness to quietly explore the Christmas story again. Enjoy remembering exactly what it meant for God to step out of heaven and became a helpless baby just for us.
