Something different...

Post has attachment
Here’s something we all look forward to every year at Christmas: a tree, placed centrally in our meeting room, is undecorated except for about fifty white candles arranged on its branches. We come together around it in the dimly-lit room, and then, as we sing one carol after another, the candles are slowly lit, one by one. With many of the candles that are lit, a wish is expressed, with others it’s an unspoken prayer or longing. It’s those quiet ones that are most poignant, and one can only guess at the burdens which are lightened as each candle is illuminated: an estranged son or daughter, a sick parent, an ailing spouse, a nagging conflict, a heavy heart. By lighting candles together we become closer: no longer strangers sitting alone in our individual darknesses, we have been transformed – like the glowing tree – by flames of love and hope and light.

Don’t read Craig Greenfield's "Subversive Jesus" if you’re happy with how you’re following Jesus right now. Seriously. With Christmas coming, there will be numerous opportunities to demonstrate your Christian charity in quick and easy ways that don’t actually change anything: neither the situations you’re ostensibly trying to improve, nor yourself.
But if you’re not happy with how you’re following Jesus – if you think your faith could somehow become more practical, more real, more honest – then by all means get a copy now.

Eberhard Arnold was a theologian, educator, publisher, and community leader who wrote, published, and spoke extensively in Europe in the early twentieth century. He lived through World War I, the economic and political instability following the war, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power. Although he died in November 1935, before Hitler’s cruelty had reached its peak and before the outbreak of World War II, he sensed the direction in which Germany was going. With a far-reaching outlook and unabashed boldness he urged his congregation to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit to change all things – and to believe that their prayer would make a difference. —Emmy Maendel
