What is Christmas?
I have a friend who works in a hospital. Because hospitals are never closed, many employees have to work one "major" and one "minor" holiday. There are few major holidays in terms of the hosptial, but one of them is Christmas. Culturally, Christmas is pretty major. It comes with its own set of songs, traditions, decorations, and food. Lots of time, money, and advertising goes into the commercial side of it.
However, whether our culture recognizes it or not, Christmas is always major for Christians. On it, we celebrate the central event of our faith - Jesus coming to earth as an infant. Without that event, the rest of the events that are central to our faith don't happen. Without Jesus birth, there is no perfect life that He lives in our place, there is no sacrificial death which brings us forgiveness for sins, there is no resurrection of Jesus which gives us hope for the resurrection of our bodies as well. The historical event that we celebrate at Christmas started it all. We celebrate Christmas at The Bridge because we have something worth celebrating. It is one of our most major holidays!
