What can I do to prepare myself to receive Christ this Christmas?
Advent often seems to disappear into a few weeks of alcoholic excesses with office "Christmas" parties weeks before the season begins and so what can I do differently this year?
Over the next 25 days I shall make a resolution to chose at least one person a day who needs encouraging and reach out to them. It could be a stranger, colleague, friend - but a new person each day.
By Christmas, this should be firmly ingrained as a habit. What greater gift can I give to Him who gives Himself to us?
