Play Sarah Hart’s beautiful, melancholy cover of “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear”. Get comfortable and close your eyes to listen to this one – imagine you’re walking at night in the snow!
Listen to this song and reflect in silence. Then take a family walk together after dinner and look at the Christmas lights in your neighborhood, or make plans to go to a public festival of lights in your town – if you’re in Portland, go to The Grotto. Look at the lights, enjoy the cold and the quiet, and just reflect on that night in Bethlehem and what it might have been like. In the dark and stillness, let God in.
