A Few Thoughts on Christmas and the New Year (Take Five)
Each week I scour Twitter and spend hours reading blog posts. It has been utterly transformational in my spiritual journey. Some articles challenge me, and some just initiate great conversations. Each week I will compile my favorite posts here. You can click the link to read the entire original post. I hope you enjoy and grow as much as I have!
I watched this adorable Christmas video several times!
An awesome Christmas post in which Nadia Bolz Weber asks, “I wonder if our over-familiarity with the Christmas story gets in the way of us understanding how weird it really was… I mean, if it involves pregnancies by virgins and old ladies from the hill country and soothsaying magi and rank shepherds and fearsome angels and God being born as a refugee in straw and mud then who’s to say a pirate or a drummer is so weird?” What impossible things can you see God doing?
Andi Cumbo’s re-post about responsible compassion left me wondering how to most effectively help others, and reflecting on my holiday giving. Have you found a balance in this struggle?
God does not require a spiritual checklist, but I appreciated the Annual Spiritual Checkup that the C.S. Lewis Institute provided this week. Could it help guide any of your New Year’s Resolutions?
