Heads Up!

Prayer for the Day

Creator God, In this holiday season that brings chaos, commercialism, and worry, help us to remember that this is not what we are called to celebrate, and find the true reason for the season. Help our actions to reflect what we are celebrating and share it with the world around us. Grant us patience, and trust as we wait for the arrival of a king, that came into the world as a baby, to save us all. Amen.


What are we celebrating this holiday season, the son of man coming and dwelling in our earth, or Santa Claus and stuff that gets in the way? Why are we celebrating?
