December 19 Home Communicator – Every week, our teachers get together for devotions to share and to pray. Once a month, our full staff – everyone from middle school and elementary – comes together to share. It is one way our large staff can stay connected as a community.
I will never forget a few years ago when one of our teachers challenged each of us to teach from the heart, to let children know our own story and relationship with Jesus Christ. The teacher went on to challenge each of us to not only retell the familiar Christmas story to our students, but to make it personal for each of us; to tell our own Christmas story.
We live in a world of communication, sometimes over-communication. Our children share openly with us as adults and they expect the same from us. The challenge for all of us is to tell the children our Christmas story as well. How does the birth of Jesus Christ affect you? What kind of an impact does it have on you personally?
It is my prayer that this Christmas, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we may allow our children a glimpse of what an impact it has made on each of us and how we must continue to “Tell the Story” for generations to come.
