The First Christmas – a series of posts

10871324_sI wrote a series of posts about the first Christmas on my blog, Bible Bites 4 Teens. These posts are equally appropriate for this new blog.

I broke the Christmas message down into several segments to offer multiple opportunities throughout the Christmas season to draw hearts (including family time settings) into the reason for the Christmas celebrations. I included suggested dates to read the posts for the benefit of those who might want to spread them out for devotions another year.
