ADVENT NIGHT AND CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS

Traditions are customs and practices we do in a repeated pattern.

Now there are traditions that have become totally useless and outdated but there are those that are good to continue because they bring meaning and purpose to why we do what we do.

Recently, my wife posted a picture of our Advent Night as a family. As a result, we got several inquiries about how we do ours and why we do Advent Nights.

Traditions have a way of perpetuating values. Since the value of Christmas is important – Jesus coming to become like one of us so that He can take our place as a sacrifice as payment for our sins.

When we visit the malls these days, it is not uncommon to see reindeer, Santa, Frosty, candy cane, Gingerbread man, Rudolph, Little Drummer Boy, and many other icons of Christmas. These can blur the main reason why we celebrate Christmas. Certain Christmas traditions can aid us to remind ourselves and our children how the first Christmas came about.

Here are a few videos posted on our Victory Fort website we (Jenn and I) made together with Pastor Joey and Marie Bonifacio to share with you on how you can build your own Christmas Traditions. We pray it will be helpful as you celebrate Christmas this year.

CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS ON DVD

Christmas is just around the corner. And it is in this season when many of our families, friends and loved ones are most open to the gospel. Because of this, we’ve come up with a tool which you may use to share the love of Jesus during this season.

The Christmas Traditions video hopes to build lasting memories with family and at the same time an opportunity to share Jesus to others.

This video may be used in several ways:

1. Show it to your family to share how to start Christmas Traditions in your own homes.
2. Get together with your Victory Group to learn how to make Christmas more meaningful in your own families.
3. Use it as a tool to invite friends and family in your Victory Group as an outreach event.
4. You may even join up with other Victory Groups to have a mini-cluster of groups to invite people from the community or office.

The 3-part video teaching of Christmas Traditions will be available for download starting Saturday, November 24, 12:00 NN from http://victoryfort.org/christmastraditions.

If you are a Victory Group Leader, you may request for a DVD copy.

We pray that God will use us to share His love to many during this holiday season.

Merry Christmas!
