Giving Good Gifts: Biblical Insights and Fruitful Ideas for Christmas
Last week at GCF we spent some time reading some Scripture passages about money and stuff and contentment; watched two short videos about consumerism, stuff, and sustainable design; and spent time discussing the connections between these.
This week we will be elaborating on the themes of money and stuff, and will move into a discussion of an ever-present theme at this time of year: Gifts.
We find ourselves in the busiest, biggest shopping season of the year as we approach Christmas.
We are inundated with advertisements for
the “best” gifts,
the “hottest” trends,
the “certain to bring a smile to her face” jewellery.
So we thought: maybe we should talk about gift-giving and gift-receiving at GCF.
What are your expectations around gift-giving and gift-receiving?
What is expected of you in terms of gift-giving in your family, for example, or among friends?
How do you experience giving or receiving gifts at Christmas–is the process
Why do we give gifts at Christmas, anyway?
What are we trying to communicate with our giving?
Join us for an evening of discussing, Scripture reading, seeking, giving, receiving, and praying.
In this crazy fast-paced time of year, join us for an evening of resting and reflecting.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
