Step into the Story: Christmas

Does it break the no-Christmas-music-before-Thanksgiving rule just to talk about a Christmas song? Because I’d really like to—just for a minute. There’s a lyric in the Christmas carol “Joy to the World,” which says, “Let every heart prepare Him room.”

Prepare Him room. Prepare room for Jesus at Christmastime.

Some years, I do better at it than others. On the less-good-at-it years, I focus far more attention on preparing room

  • in my house for all the Christmas decorations
  • on my calendar for all the extra events
  • in my budget for gifts
  • in my kitchen for meal prep
  • at my table for family and friends

than I do on preparing room in my heart for Jesus.

It’s not that I miss out on Jesus entirely. But my reflections on the spiritual heart of the season can quickly get pushed to the margins—to a weekly church service or to a slightly rueful twinge when I catch a glimpse of the nativity set on my mantel.

How about you?

If you (like me) could use some help making room for Jesus this Advent season, then consider joining me the evening of December 2. We’ll step into the Christmas story in a way that can create space in your heart for you to notice Jesus’ story weaving its way through your story all Christmas long.

This might be just what you need to help your heart prepare room for Jesus this Advent season.

Here are the basics about the evening:
