Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 11, 2022 message: “Life of Christmas Present: Look upon Me!”

At the beginning of the story, Scrooge has a prescription for humanity – the poor have only themselves to blame and would be better off dead. So, when he is visited by the spirit of the present, he is admonished to “look!” because he must really see the truth of a suffering world and his hand in it. Love is the center of the message this week. What if, in this season, our lives reflected the truth that God has already blessed everyone, and we are called to make visible and tangible those blessings?

This is the third week in our series, “God Bless Us, Every One! The Redemption of Scrooge.” Pastor Mary’s message is based on Deuteronomy 15: 7-11 and Matthew 2: 1-18.

The 9:00 am and 11:00 am worship services are available in their entirety on YouTube.
