What to do with Santa

As a parent and believer in Christ, I want my children to savor the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Holidays such as Easter and Christmas are paramount in the Christian faith to remember, look upon, and glorify God through due to the incarnation and resurrection of the Son. This “Ask Pastor John” episode is a thought-provoking word on the Santa that clouds this season and namely, the minds and hearts of children. I couldn’t agree more. I want Norah and Owen to know the details surrounding the birth of Christ and see the glorious counsel within our Triune God that has brought it all about throughout the narrative of Scripture. With that being said, Christmas trees, decorations, and the giving of gifts are not going to be excluded in our family traditions but they will be focused on Christ and the gospel.
