Scripture
Luke 2:16-20
16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Grandma’s Christmas Visit
“Grandma’s Christmas Visit” is episode #678 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Kirby Atkins and Dave Arnold (among others), and originally aired on December 18, 2010.

Summary

The Parker’s grandma comes for a Christmas visit, in the middle of an elaborate Christmas celebration cooked up by Eugene and Connie. The Parker family parents wonder if it’s possible to have a Christmas without stress.

Plot

The gang at Whit's End are trying a new tradition. First, they act out Mary and Joseph looking for an inn-with the director yelling orders. Then they go on to the "Let's make a White Elephant Deal" game show, in which Matthew gets an 8 track tape and a quarter worth over $100, Camilla gets used socks and a gift card for the mall for $20, and Emily Jones gets a cereal box and a necklace.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Discussion Questions

  1. Like the gang in Odyssey, do we ever get caught up in holidays and traditions without giving glory to God?
  2. Should we let the stress and pressure around Christmas effect us?
