This past Sunday, we received more ideas from the Westheights Church family on the topic of:  “What could we be doing differently this Christmas?”  If you’d like to add your own ideas, please add a Comment at the bottom of this posting, or email it to Mimi and she’ll post it on the blog for you.  Sharing these ideas helps inspire and encourage us as we strive together to make this Christmas more meaningful and worshipful.

  1. This year, I’m hanging ornaments on a cross instead of a tree.  (contributed by a jr high student)
  2. At work, instead of exchanging gifts we pooled the money we would normally have spent and are using it to support a family from the Angel Tree – gifts, food vouchers, etc.  There are nine of us on our team.
  3. Instead of giving each of my staff a small gift this year, I am going to make a donation to ROOF.  ROOF was my department’s United Way organization to support over the next year.  The gift will mean more to those at ROOF than the staff, I’m sure.
