This week we noticed a home for the holidays theme in our church planters' blogs, so rather than repost one or all three of them, we decided to highlight each of them and their unique perspectives on being home for the holidays. Chances are you'll find something to relate to in at least one of them.
Neil Powell, network leader and planter of City Church Birmingham, gives some practical advice and a book recommendation for those attempting the delicate task of sharing one's faith with family members.
Rev. John Haralson, senior pastor at Grace Seattle, addresses how to make the best of time with family when our relationships with family members are strained at best. He reminds us to remember what is good and fallen in both our families and ourselves.
Finally, as usual, Mez McConnell of Niddrie Community Church in Edinburgh made us laugh with his spoof of the annual family newsletter, which unconsciously (or consciously) can begin to sound like a list of accomplishments.
God bless you and yours this Christmas.
