What do you want for Christmas?
Tis the season for big screen TVs and monthly subscriptions, gifts we don’t need and sweaters we shouldn’t own. Christmas tends to be a favorite season, and why wouldn’t it be? It’s all about food, decorating and gifts! So what do you want for Christmas this year? No, what do you really want?
This upcoming weekend we are launching a new sermon series titled “All I Want for Christmas” where Pastor Ron will be covering what we all really want during the Christmas season. It’s not the big screen TV, it’s not the latest iPhone and it’s not even about the food. It’s about family; it’s about friends and community. While the gadgets change every year, the one thing that doesn’t change about the Christmas season is the tradition of coming together with friends and family to celebrate the birth of our savior.
We were made to be in community with other people, whether that be our immediate family or the extended family of Christ. When you think back to your favorite memories from the Christmas season, it’s not the presents that you remember, it’s not the honey baked ham you had for dinner you recall; it’s the time spent with your loved ones. In a world that is go, go, go the Christmas season gives us the time to slow down and appreciate what we truly value in life.
We want to extend an invite to you to come together with us during this Christmas season here at Cornerstone Community Church and find out what it is that you really want for Christmas this year.
