IN SEARCH of the REAL SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
“This Christmas, I’ll start shopping earlier.”
“This Christmas, we’ll visit all the relatives.”
“This Christmas, I’ll find that missing box of decorations.”
“This year, I’ll bake the cookies from scratch.”
“This year, we’re going to do Christmas right.”
If these promises sound familiar, In Search of the Real Spirit of Christmas is for you.
Christmas seasons come and go, often leaving us with vague pangs of regret. Why does the Christmas spirit seem so elusive? What is the real Christmas spirit anyway? Even those who know the Reason for the season can find themselves wondering if they’ve missed something.
Dan Schaeffer understands that familiarity can rob us of the glory of Christmas. We become immune to the Story’s real power. But Schaeffer also has some help for us. He even has advice for what to do when it doesn’t feel like Christmas.
In Search of the Real Spirit of Christmas takes you beyond the trappings and trimmings and into the wonder of the best gift of the season—the essence of Christmas.
Dan Schaeffer is an award-winning writer who pastors Shoreline Community Church in Santa Barbara, California. His work has appeared regularly in more than thirty different Christian magazines and periodicals, in many different countries and languages.
