Sometimes the week leading up to Christmas can be hectic, with ministry parties or team gatherings and trying to get errands finished so you can enjoy a fun day with friends and family.
It can also feel especially lonely and hard as you see pictures of Christmas programs and gift exchanges that you are missing, a reminder that the people you love are spread across borders and oceans.
We want to quiet the noise, the striving, for a few moments of reflection this week. Our blog posts will invite you to consider the birth of Christ our Savior, the hope of the world. The images will be simple with no text, further opportunity to stop and breath and let the wonder of a God who came near into your heart.
If you have a special nativity set that you want to share, we would love to see it! You can add your image on social media and tag us or use the hashtag #VelvetAshesNativity. We are praying for you this week.
