Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 24, 2017 at 11 pm: “This Will Be a Sign: #morelove”

The sky was brighter than usual that night, making it easier to keep track of the sheep. And then it got really bright. You would have thought that all that “glory” shining would have been “the sign.” That’s what most of us look for–great big obvious clues about God’s presence. But instead, the angel says that a baby… a newborn helpless baby in a feeding trough was it–the sign. In a flash, the message was that #morelove is found where you least expect it and perhaps is already there residing in the ordinariness of your life.

Pastor Mary’s Christmas Eve message is based on Luke 2: 1-20.  To read it, click here. For a quick retelling of the Christmas story, watch “Paper Nativity.”
