The Christmas Song
I heard a pastor confess that he dreaded Christmas time because he was out of creative ways to tell “the same old” Christmas story in a new way.
From a storyteller’s perspective, no one could improve Christmas. A virgin giving birth, shepherds seeing angels, God sleeping in a feeding trough, a King stalking an infant, magi chasing a star. Best of all, this is no myth. This is reality, with powerful theological ramifications. So it bears repeating.
The writer of “The Christmas Song” included the line: “Although it’s been said, many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you.”
- What do you see for the first time?
- What strikes you about the narratives?
- How are the two accounts different?
- What does it reveal about God?
As you read God’s Word, may you experience Christmas in a fresh and powerful way.
