This time of year everyone is decorating for the holidays...opening their crates of stuff remembering what they bought on sale last year after Christmas. They are setting up the tree, arranging the nativity, and putting all the holiday plans together. We sit in church and hear once again about the shepherds, wisemen, angels, Mary and Joseph. We exchange presents with the family, and eat lots of food. And that is Christmas! And for many of us we love Christmas.
As we move our way through this Advent season, my goal is to continually remind us how real this Christmas story is. Not a fairy tale or moral story - but the story that starts on Christmas with God who loves you and ends on Easter with God who saves you. It is a story like none other - and best yet...it is REAL!
To lead our community in a life changing, ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
