North Staffordshire Group Meeting – TWO STORIES—CHRISTMAS and XMAS
Sunday 4 December 2016
TWO STORIES – CHRISTMAS AND XMAS
The various elements of the Birth Narratives in Matthew and Luke are theological constructs intended to convey revealed truths about God; the power of divine vulnerability, bias to the poor, the universality of divine love. We shall look at the elements of ‘Xmas’ , the 25th December as celebrated in 21st C Britain, such as gift giving, conditional hospitality, indulgence in rich foods and drink, and ask “How far does all this reflect the New Testament Christmas stories? Or is a completely different set of values in operation?” Please contribute any Christmas or Xmas stories (real or fictional) that throw light on these questions!
