We all have different traditions and routines that we like to do on Christmas – they could be going to church, how we unwrap the presents, maybe a Christmas swim or spot of backyard cricket.  Our traditions might include a nap after eating too much for Christmas lunch, or just trying to wrangle everyone into the family photo.

With Christmas upon us this week Ryan Vallee looks at the first Christmas.  Whatever traditions we might have, or things that we love about Christmas – there was nothing routine, and nothing postcard perfect about the first Christmas that began the celebration just on 2000 years ago.

Ryan Vallee is the Pastor of Community Outreach at Riverlife Baptist Church in Seventeen Mile Rocks.  He holds three passports (US, Canadian and Australian), and in his spare time he loves boxing (listen to Ryan’s boxing story here), beach runs and big breakfasts!

If you’re looking for a church in the western suburbs, you can find out more about Riverlife and their service times at their website.  They will also be holding their annual Prayer Gathering on Sunday January 3rd 2021.  You can join in as people gather with one heart, one prayer, for the city God loves as the New Year begins.
