Dec. 17 Gathering: Christmas Traditions – Finding Sacredness in the Ordinary

Holy Family in the tradition of Christmas

Every family has them. Time-honored traditions of the Advent and Christmas seasons. The things we do, the places we do them, and the people we do them with are all deeply integral parts of how we celebrate the holidays.

And while most of those traditions are special to us, many of them comprise fairly common elements. Things like decorations, foods, family rituals are deeply rooted in our psyches, but are mostly more sentimental than sacrosanct.

Or are they?

What if we began to recognize the sacredness in our ordinary routines? To find that behind the garland-covered mantles, the overbaked sugar cookies, the elves on assorted shelves, and the inside family jokes was something deeply holy?

This Sunday at New Wineskins we invite you to come and share your stories of holiday traditions and talk about where we can find sacredness in the ordinary routines of our Christmas customs. And maybe we’ll even start a few new traditions of our own!

Join us Sunday, Dec. 17 in the 167 Side Room of the  Marietta Brewing Company for Christmas storytime at New Wineskins!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
