Dear Friend,

It's common this time of year to ask, "Are you ready for Christmas?"

Usually what's meant by this is, have you purchased all the presents you wish to give? Are your travel plans all set? Will you be taking time off between Christmas and New Year?

Shorthand expressions save time and unneeded explanation, but sometimes they misstate the very question they ask.

In a recent talk at FRC, Dr. Kenyn Cureton got to the real meaning of how to be ready for Christmas and invited us to consider how to truly prepare for "the Word (Who) became flesh." Dr. Cureton, who leads FRC's Church Ministries department, invested 20 years as a pastor after earning his Ph.D. in theology. His message is informed by a scholar's eye and a pastor's heart, and most supremely by love for Jesus Christ. You can listen here.

Get ready - and Merry Christmas!
