Twelve Days of Christmas: Dec 28 The Feast of the Innocents

Some simple ways to hold the joy of Christmas through the 12 days of Christmas…. until twelfth night (January 6).

When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi.— Matthew 2:16

Ideas: Pray specifically for world leaders. Unobtrusively make a gesture of peace toward someone you know, in the spirit of loving those you don’t find easy to love. Deliver a basket of goodies for a shut in or care provider. In this time of covid isolation, check i on someone who may be alone. Read an account of refugee children. Bring love to light and life in conversation.
