Christmas Lessons

Have you learned a thing or two after putting up the Christmas tree year after year? Beyond the practicalities of situating and decorating the tree, each step offers a Christmas tree tutorial befitting of the holiday season. Whether you put up a fresh tree with all its fragrance, a tree of artificial greenery, or an aluminum version with its sparkling branches, looking at the tree a bit differently harks in a fun way to the season’s Scriptural lessons.

In this month’s bulletin, you can also find out how a simple, homemade toy shows what happens when we get so wound up in Christmas preparations that the Advent season’s early gifts get pushed aside. Taking time for Advent interludes can keep you on a straight spiritual path toward a blessed celebration of our Savior’s birth.
