The Vital Art of Celebration
A Christmas Essay by John Dennison


"There is something about celebration—real rejoicing— that you just can’t fake.”

In this beautifully produced, stocking-filler-sized essay, John Dennison discovers anew what the people of God have found through the ages: that in the midst of troubled times, real Christmas celebration rises up to testify to what is deeply true about the world, about humanity, and about God. For in the extraordinary birth of Jesus of Nazareth, God has done a new thing. If ever there was an occasion to celebrate with newness and with extraordinary festival, it is Christmas. If ever there was a time to dance, if ever there was a time to sing, it is now. Now is the time for an absurdity of light. If ever there was occasion for celebration, it is now!

The Vital Art of Celebration is a special print essay drawn from Common Ground, Venn Foundation’s digital magazine. For more writing, reflection, art, and spiritual practices that help you to embrace the depths and riches of the Christian faith for the good of your work, home and community, go to
