Heather and I have tried to think of ways to make Christmas be focused on Christ and his birth. This year, we are using ideas from a handful of sites to help us find scriptures and songs to read and sing on Christmas morning.
The following scriptures and hymns are what we plan to do in case it helps anyone else figure out what to do on their Christmas.
Genesis 3:1-24 pg. 2
O Come, O Come Emmanuel #100 Hymns for the Living Church
Isaiah 11:1-11 pg. 440
Lo How A Rose E'er Blooming #221 Trinity Hymnal
Isaiah 35:1-10 pg. 452
Luke 1:26-56 pg. 633
Joy Has Dawned photocopy from worshiptogether.com
Matthew 1:18-24 pg. 595
It Came Upon A Midnight Clear #104 Hymns for the Living Church
Luke 2:1-20 pg. 634
The First Noel #100 Smith Hymnal
John 1:1-17 pg. 658
Of the Father's Love Begotten #162 Trinity
Hebrews 1:1-2:4 pg. 753
Joy To The World #195 Trinity

This is a wonderful plan for Christmas ... it might get used at our house tomorrow morning. I was planning for a time of Scripture reading and prayer, but this layout of Scripture and hymns is excellent. Thank you! What I find so encouraging about many of the Christmas hymns is that Christ is the center, and they explain why He came. This is a great way to be reminded of what really matters.
