Extra Helpings for Christmas: New Courses from LHM LearnAs you contemplate what to do with your Christmas break this year, why not ramp up your learning quotient? You can do this with three fresh additions to LHM Learn: the rapidly expanding menu of courses being offered by Lutheran Hour Ministries.
LHM's Holiday Video Specials: Shades of Christmastime PastLutheran Hour Ministries has produced a number of Christmas-related specials over the years, and many are available for stocking your home library. These video gems are great for kids (and grownups too) and add a bit of warm nostalgia to the holidays. Don't be surprised if you find a local TV station or cable outlet airing one or more of these longtime favorites, too. The classics never go out of season.
Those Left Behind: Suicide's SurvivorsWhile the holidays can help us forget our worries for a little while, for those facing the loss of a family member or friend to suicide the pain this time of year can be more acute than ever.
Holiday Reflections to Make a Bright Season BrighterThe next time you read this newsletter, Christmas Day will be over. While you may still be in the afterglow of a fantastic Christmas dinner complete with all the trimmings, the next event will be the coming New Year. But before then, to keep your mind focused on the things that matter most, take some time over the next few weeks to explore Love Came Down, LHM's Advent devotions for 2017.
A Place for JesusThis year's Advent devotions once again tell of the timeless story when God came to us, came down to us, fully, in human form, and joined us in this world of pain and sorrow. His birth was magnificent in its simplicity and, in keeping with Christ's humble status, was not the stuff of fanfare or spectacle. Still, His arrival has universal application and for us ~ it changes everything. Here, if you don't already receive them as a daily email or read them online, is this year's Advent devotion for Christmas Day.
