For those of us in the US, our Thanksgiving came earlier than normal this year. This allows us even more time to develop Christmas outreaches. Despite the commercialism and hoopla over political correctness, this is still our holiday. Interest in spiritual matters peaks at this time of year, giving us an opportunity to share about the real meaning of Christmas.
Webmaster, Jeff Bridgforth, has a page devoted to Christmas resources on the GodSquad, http://www.godsquad.com/seasonal/christmas.htm. On that page he lists:
- the Candy Cane outreach idea,
- some thoughts from Ellen Schumacher, Northeast Catalytic, about Christmas outreaches,
- links to EveryStudent.com Christmas resources,
- and the Christmas focus at LeaderU.
I have been in lots of conversations recently about students owning and leading in evangelism. Because their time is limited, we have got to make outreach easy for them to do. Here is a great opportunity for them to easily share with their friends the message of Christmas.
