Ecclesiastes 3: 1-15
1. What life-rhythms do you appreciate most? Do others join you in these rhythms? Do some fight or even sabotage your rhythms?
2. What are the most important traditions you have leading up to Christmas? What brings you the most joy and satisfaction? Which of your traditions are the most stressful?
3. Which of your pre-Christmas activities could be slightly pruned or made simpler? What could be eliminated?
What could be postponed until January or even February?
4. Be sure to tell your family and friends about your simplification efforts this season. Enlist their help and cooperation.
