In Christ We Are The Found

In Christ We Are The Found

Christ entered the darkness of our humanity to find us and make a way for us. That's our identity: in Christ, we are the found. He came to us in the most human of ways to rescue us from the sinfulness of our humanity. 

When You Don't Have Traditions

When You Don't Have Traditions

The holidays are different for everyone. For a lot of people, they're the highlight of the year. Their time is spent practicing traditions, singing Christmas music, and celebrating with friends and family. Then, there are the people like me, who only celebrate Christmas on December 25th. My family doesn't have any traditions, nor am I the biggest fan of Christmas music or the whole ugly sweater thing. The holidays look different for me, and for a long time I thought that was a bad thing. In the age of social media, I've found myself getting caught up in a game of comparison, thinking of my holidays season as less-than because I don't have any traditions to look forward to, let alone any Christmas cheer to spread around.

Finding Christmas Cheer

Finding Christmas Cheer

It was a winter's evening. Christmas lights illumined the tower, and the hum of voices filled the room. It should have been a cheery scene, but the topic of conversation lingered on finals,  to-do lists, and finding perfect gifts. Stress tangibly radiated from my dear friends as they recalled all they had to accomplish before Christmas break.
