Christmas Grace and Light: Contemporary Stories of Light Overcoming the Darkness by Barry A. Lehman
Christmas always begins with a story. There’s a man and a woman traveling to a distant city where a baby born in a stable. There are shepherds and angels. Because of this story, Christmas is a season when we are more attuned to the spiritual and its possibilities of breaking into our world.
Christmas Grace and Light is a collection of short stories and reflections on the promise of Christmas. While the reflections are based on actual events, the stories imagine a world where Christmas is new every year. Written for Christmas worship, they tell of people caught in the world’s worries, running away from hope, perplexed by their own lives, or discovering unexplainable events. Just like you and me. In those events and uncertainties, light breaks into the darkness. We discover the ever-present wonder of God’s grace that became human in the very first Christmas.
This Christmas let these stories open new pathways to remind you that you are not alone in your journeys. Read these stories and you will be surprised at how God is walking with you at Christmas.
