Christmas is a joyful time of year. However, it can also be a very lonely time of year. While many of us are celebrating with family & friends, there are those that spend December sitting alone at home, wishing & praying for January to come quickly. Everything the see & hear only reminds them of the loneliness. Our small groups have an opportunity to ease some of that loneliness by supporting those that spend the Holiday season without the support of family.
Peri Gilbert discusses ways small groups can help the lonely through this season in this article from Christianity Today.
