Happy Birthday, Jesus!

I find it very odd that normal church schedules are adjusted for Christmas because it falls on Sunday this year.  We had two very nice candlelight worship services Christmas Eve that were well attended.

Our church normally has three services but on Christmas, we only have one and Sunday School classes and  adult Bible Studies are canceled this week.  It's obvious the reason is that people put family before Jesus.  There, I said it.  Christians say that Christmas is Christ's birthday celebration, yet when it comes down to it, do we really put Him first?  I wonder.  I wonder what God thinks of Christians skipping church on Sunday because it's not convenient for their family plans.

I would think the churches would be full on Christmas morning this year but it doesn't seem to be the case.  I wonder why.  Just sayin'.

It's Jesus Christ's Birthday! Happy Birthday, Jesus! Take some time and watch this video, What Would Jesus Want For Christmas?

I think Jesus Wish List would look something like this:
♦The worship of all people
♦Unity among all my followers
♦People loving one another
♦Me to seek Him and do His will
♦For his followers to tell others about Him

What will you give Jesus this year for His birthday?

What do you think about this?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!  Merry Christmas everyone!

I think you really hit the nail on the head with this topic. Our church is having a regular Christmas-eve service tonight. Then tomorrow on CHRISTmas day, they'll have an hour long homestyle Christmas service in the fireside room...complete with cinnamon roles and coffee :) :) The service starts an hour later than usual, to give families time to do their things in the morning...but it's still going to be a church service tomorrow ;) :)

Happy CHRISTmas to you and your sweet family :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

I've not a clue since we don't attend church. I would think it's a time for family and many travel great distances to visit with relatives. If they have to be in church all day then that would take away from family. Just a guess here. One things for can't make everyone happy.

Have a terrific day and a very merry Christmas. :)
