Presents. That’s what this season is all about, isn’t it? Retail stores, online shopping, lists that we make (and check twice). What would Christmas be without the presents? When we’re feeling cheerful, the gifts we give make the holiday special. And when we’re feeling cynical—or swamped, or tired—presents turn the holiday into a merchandise swap, leaving us with bills, stress, and a sweater we never wanted.
 
This Christmas, what if you gave more? Not more packages and boxes, gift bags and gift cards—but more of something deeper, that let both you and the ones you love experience the season with joy… with peace… with hope… and with love?
 
Because what would Christmas be… without presence?
