Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 24, 2015 message: “The Angels and Shepherds at the Manger”

The appearance of the angels to the shepherds is a great contrast – heavenly beings coming to some of those who were considered the most humble and outcast in society. The message of God’s salvation is for all people. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we remember what God saves us from and what God saves us for.
