THE CHRISTMAS STORY ~ DAY 1: A Christmas Tradition. Beginning December 1st, read one chapter of Luke each day through December 24th. There are 24 chapters. By Christmas Eve, you will have read all 24 chapters, an entire account of the birth, ministry, sacrifice on the cross and resurrection of Jesus. Join me as I work my way through the Book of Luke and together let’s celebrate Jesus as the Reason for the SEASON!
