Holidays: Preference, Orientation, & Freedom!

What is your holiday preference?  My holiday orientation is Christmas — celebrating the birth of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ!

Christmas is Freedom Day — time for mental, emotional, and spiritual captives to be set free from their self-destructive thoughts, attitudes, and actions!

“She will give birth to a Son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.”

“God asks us to liberate ourselves from self-absorption, from our narcissism.  It requires great courage to be liberated from the bondage of this world.”  –Maximos of Cyprus

Merry Christ*mas

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
