It’s the second of December. You have just over three weeks to get ready for Christmas. I’m not talking about presents and cakes and turkeys and mince pies and cranberry sauce. I’m talking about the fact that Christmas softens people’s hearts. It’s amazing – the combination of the cold, snow making everything look clean, the idea of Santa giving gifts gratis, and possibly too much Christmas wine – but people are softer right now than they ever are.
People associated Christmas with church still as well. So this is the single best time to invite people to church! That is the simple truth.
So think about who you know – friends, family, work colleagues – people who will turn down an invite to “church” will probably accept an invitation to a Carol Service.
So use this season wisely!
