We give gifts at Christmas. What are the greatest gifts we have received? Have given? In this season, we want to remember that all gifts, even the concept of a “gift” is from God. God gives us the greatest gifts and ultimately we see this in the giving of himself - God with us.
In alignment with the tradition of advent, we want to celebrate the great gifts that God has given us as we recall the depths of the Christmas story and its implications for our lives. In the end, we want to lead people to Jesus, to see the beauty of the gospel. God lowers himself to meet and lift the lowly. He meets lowly Mary, the lowly shepherds, and he also meets us to give us great gifts from him and ultimately all gifts lead us to The Gift - God himself.
