Preparing Ourselves for Christmas

Where do you place yourself on a continuum between having the disposition and emotions that impede your wholehearted observance of Christmas and having those traits and emotions that contribute to your full participation in Christmas celebration? In three sessions we will discuss among ourselves ways we can move from despair to hope (December 1), from hate to love (December 8), and from sadness to joy (December 15).

Our goal will be to acquire the peace of mind and heart necessary for experiencing the hope, love, and joy of Christ-with-us. Please bring a version of the Bible and paper for jotting down notes and journaling.
