The Bible has nothing to say about the spirit of Christmas...but
plenty to say about the Spirit of Christmas. He shows up
everywhere in the nativity narrative. He comes upon Mary in
Galilee. He convinces Joseph in a dream. He leaps for joy inside
Elizabeth, and leads an old man named Simeon to the temple,
fulfilling a promise that he would not die before laying eyes on
the Lord's Messiah. The true Spirit of Christmas is not a
nostalgic feeling, or an attitude of generosity. He is a
Person ... a Person who speaks, teaches, encourages, reminds, and
intercedes on our behalf. He is all around us, he to convince us
that with God, all things are possible.
Our prayer for you this 25th anniversary of Christmas In The
Chapel is that the true Spirit of Christmas who invaded our
world one midnight clear, will arrive at your door this
Christmas season ... and be welcomed home.
