The concept on the perfect inconvenient Christmas holiday

In each of our minds, we probably have some concept of what the perfect Christmas holiday is supposed to look like. Few if any, would put standing outside in a chilling wind to sing Christmas carols on our “must do list”. At best, some might describe the experience as, “a little inconvenient”.

Historically, our church has hosted a Christmas Eve candle light service that is always well attended. Because of health and safety issues associated to the pandemic, we opted to vary in our traditional approach. Instead of meeting in the comfort and beauty of our sanctuary, last night we opted to use the church building as the back drop and sing Christmas carols in the church parking lot. We did so adhering to social distancing and as an extra precautionary measure, sing through face masks. It fell into the category of inconvenient.

Historically, God has always overlooked the inconvenient in fulfilling his promises and making provision of his gifts. It was to shepherds in the field keeping watch of their flocks by night that the angel appeared with the message: “Fear not, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”
