Winston Churchill once said, “Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection.”

Reflection has at least two meanings: one refers to remembering, pondering or contemplating; the other is a representation of an image given back by a reflecting surface.

  • Take time to ponder and reflect on the birth of Jesus by asking family members to share their favorite part of the Nativity story and what it means to them. (refer to Luke and Matthew)
  • Pass a mirror between family members and ask each one to share an aspect of their image that they like when they see their reflection in the mirror. Have fun with this. Affirm each other.
  • Discuss together ways you’ve noticed that “The Son reflects the glory of God and shows exactly what God is like”. Hebrews 1:3 (NCV)
  • How can you be a reflection of Jesus to those you spend time with?
