As we welcome our youth group alumni home this Christmas season, I pray our conversations will be “always full of grace.”
Our “hero boy” (as he is billed in the movie credits) in the The Polar Express is in the same place of doubt as Jesus’ disciple Thomas.
Last year at Rooted, we asked parents to write about one of their favorite Christmas hymns or songs and how it impacted their parenting.
Watch Elf and imagine what it would be like to inhabit the gospel story with all the passion and zeal Buddy the elf has for Christmas.
