Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 20, 2015: “Going to Bethlehem”

All the while, Mary and Joseph trusted in the promise of “Emmanuel” – God with us. How do we trust in that promise even when there are detours, stalls, flat tires, breakdowns, and “no room in the inn times” on our journey of life and faith?
