"And everyone went to his own town…" (Luke 2:3).

Getting home for Christmas is pretty important to a lot of people. It‘s a tradition we have all but immortalized. Our hearts go out to those who for some reason or another cannot get home for Christmas. Some have to work, others are sick, still others can‘t afford it. Parents have died, a marriage has broken and the family split apart, or family members are institutionalized.

We hope that you will make it home for Christmas, that you will be where you want to be, and with the people you want to be with. If this is not possible, and in many cases it will not be possible, it does not mean that your Christmas or that of your loved ones will be ruined. As a pastor, I have never been to my home (where I grew up) for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. It is a part of my job to be at my church where I am a pastor. We just celebrate together as a family after December 25th. Being home for Christmas does not depend on being with certain people in a certain place (my son, Darin, is in China). Home is where Christ is and when we have Christ, we are home for Christmas no matter where we are.
