2 Corinthians 9:15 Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!
There might not be days off work, office parties and school performances. You might not be braving airport chaos or making the long drive over the river and through the woods to Grandma’s house this Christmas. You might be in a t-shirt instead of an ugly sweater, gathering in a living room with no tree but full of friends or teammates.
Let’s pause this week in this space, though, to remember the greatest gift of all. Whatever that looks like for you, whether you are living your best life or aching with loneliness, let this community be your people, the place you remember and celebrate and share honestly about longing and hope.
Gather in the living room of our blog posts this week, or in the great hall of our social media as you share glimpses of what Christmas looks like wherever you are. You can tag your images or stories on Instagram with the hashtag #VelvetAshesChristmas, as we celebrate the gift of Jesus.
