What did you like best about Christmas when you were a kid? New toys? Grandmother's house? Or was it the piney aroma of the tree? Could it have been simply the sheer wonder of it all? If you watch young children on Christmas morning, you'll see the excitement sparkling in their eyes. That's what this preaching series is all about - experiencing the joy of Christmas by opening your heart to this season of wonder.
This season can be one of awe, mystery, and excitement if we open our hearts in childlike wonder. With this Advent Celebration, you'll help your congregation to "open their heart's door to Christmas and beyond."
By learning the lessons from the biblical characters of the Christmas story, you'll encourage your listeners to:
1. Open your heart's door to God's plans
2. Open your heart's door to friends and strangers
3. Open your heart's door to silence and song
4. Open your heart's door to divine encounters
5. Open your heart's door to God's love for you
6. Open your heart's door to new opportunities
