Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 22, 2019 message: “Make the Nations Prove – Peaceful Joy”

Emmanuel means “God with us.” We continue to yearn for “Emmanuel” with those who have come before us – for god to become so present that God’s peace, truth, love, and justice reign among all the world and bring balance to what feels out-of-sorts. Psalm 98 names the joyful expression of all creation as the response to the news that the Prince of Peace, Emmanuel, is coming at long last.

This is the fourth week in the series, “Heaven and Nature Sing: 300 Years of ‘Joy to the World.'” Pastor Mary’s message is based on Isaiah 7: 10-16 and Matthew 1: 18-25. To read it, click here.
