This month’s List:
6 Simple Christmas Reminders
by Christine Pauley

Advent and Christmas give us lots of opportunities to share God’s love with others and remind ourselves about the real meaning of these seasons. Try some of these ideas to keep Jesus first in your celebrations.
1. When you wrap gifts: pray for the person the gift will go to.
2. When you see a candle: remember that Christ is the light of the world and that God wants us to spread that light to others.
3. When you see a Christmas tree: give thanks for the beauty of God’s creation and ask God to help you be a good caretaker of your part of creation.
4. When you hear a Christmas bell ring: think of the good news of Jesus’ coming to the world and set aside some of your own money to donate to a Christmas charity in your community.
5. When you sing Christmas carols: really think about what the words say and sing them joyfully.
6. When you wish someone a Merry Christmas: say a quick prayer for that person. At the end of the day, think of all the people you have wished a Merry Christmas that day and again pray for them.
