Your Plus 1 Assignment: Practice Dangerously Good Faith this week by praying for a few people you want to invite to Christmas Eve Services.
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… One high and one low from your day.|
In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. (Luke 2:8-11)
|Talk… What about the birth of Jesus fills you with joy? How would you define joy? What gives you joy? What might be the difference between joy and happiness? How might you bring joy to someone tomorrow?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
