Christmas Response
Christmas Fruit: A Sermon

Simple Christmas

What is a common theme among these three Christmas songs: “One Small Child,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and “Silent Night?”

These Christmas songs critique flashy and extravagant holiday celebrations. The messages of these songs highlight the importance of silent and little Christmas experiences. Do you remember the line: “I am a poor boy too… I have no gift to bring… That's fit to give our king.” Let us continue to celebrate unassuming and quiet Christmas moments. Let us treasure the “Infant, so tender and mild”—draw close to our hearts the simple Christmas things in life. There is beauty in “One small child in a land of a thousand.” There is hope and freedom when we remember and celebrate small and ordinary stuff. Have a merry simple Christmas!


Checkout “Silent Night” by David Crowder from the 2011 album Oh For Joy, “Little Drummer Boy” by Jars of clay from the 2007 album Christmas Songs, and “One Small Child” by David Meece from the 1990 album Our Christmas.
