Read Luke 2:1-20

At the time when Jesus was born, shepherds weren’t considered to be very important. They had important work to do, but they weren’t people that others might necessarily invite to their homes. Yet they were invited to meet the baby Jesus.

Who do you know that may feel excluded or left out?

Who do we know who might feel or be alone this Christmas?

Join hands together. Name those who come to mind that on this Christmas Eve are alone and forgotten.

Together, think of a way you can recognize and remember some of the forgotten people.

Together, pray for the forgotten people in your home, your church, or your community.
