Christmas isn’t about stuff. And Christmas isn’t about busyness. Christmas is about the generosity of God. And Christmas is about the incredible gift He shared with us. For us!
For a child has been born—for us!
the gift of a son—for us!
He’ll take over
the running of the world.
His names will be: Amazing Counselor,
Prince of Wholeness.
His ruling authority will grow,
and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings. Isaiah 9:6, The Message
There will be no limits to the wholeness he brings. Now that is a reason to celebrate!
Presents. Lights. Trees. Cards. Parties. Elves on shelves. Santa Claus. Reindeer. Blow-Up Snow Globes. Stockings. Hallmark Christmas Movies. They are all have their place. But that place
isn’t shouldn’t be at the center of this special holiday. Yet sometimes, in all the stuff, and in all the busyness, we get lost in the festivity and forget the true meaning of the season.
This year, let’s not forget.
Let’s take back Christmas.
Food for the Hungry is launching a campaign this Christmas, “The 8 Days of Giving” Challenge. Our Director of Digital Media, Jeremy Reis, is leading the charge and will be blogging from December 9 to December 16, on the FH Blog. Our goal is to give 800 gifts, 100 gifts per day, from the FH Christmas Catalog.
The FH Christmas Catalog is designed to deliver gifts that impact the lives on the most vulnerable globally. Through the gift catalog, families in need receive items like small farm animals, school supplies and uniforms and bed nets.
We’d love it if you would join us in taking back Christmas. Here are three simple ways you can help:
