There are few things better than a couple days off work, mountains of food, and an intentional time of thankfulness. We call this time Thanksgiving. We set aside the last Thursday of November to spend time with family and ask each other what we’re thankful for.
Over the course of a year, I don’t believe there is another time in which there are as many Gospel symbols littered across our paths than Christmastime. Just today, as I left my house, I passed two Christmas trees topped with a bright and shining star, a few nativities scattered decoratively around the house, candy canes, and Christmas cards with wise men, shepherds and the manger prominently displayed.
