Preaching Christ At Christmas

November 9, 2009

The incarnation is a wonderful theme to preach on. But preaching multiple Christmas sermons each year on a limited number of passages, can be a challenge: especially if you’ve been doing it for 20 years! 

If you are based in Scotland, you might be interested to go along to a workshop Peter Grainger is running on the 28th of November in Edinburgh: “Preaching Christ at Christmas.” Peter will be sharing some thoughts on how to approach your Christmas preaching with freshness. If you’re interested, contact Peter directly for more details: pjgrainger@keme.co.uk.


Hopefully, for those of us further afield, Peter will be able to produce some of the material in a form that can be disseminated.



  1. Just got given the “Christmassy” bit of Malachi to work on… um…

  2. I had to chuckle when I saw your note about “doing it for 20 years.” I’ve been doing it for nearly 40 years and often re-work older sermons for Advent and Christmas. But, to stay fresh, I try to work up a new series every three or four years.

  3. Found this on the Resurgence blog today. Useful?


  4. Some of the materials from the session and example Christmas messages have been posted here:
