Some ppl have a knack for being killjoys. During Christmas season they are those who will argue about the origin or validity of Christmas. Amongst the many killjoys some will argue that Christmas did not really happen during Winter and that we adjusted this event to fit the calendar…blah blah blah…who cares!? That’s tiny detail compared to the HUGENESS of the event itself. Do not get sidetracked. Let’s focus on the event: Jesus was born! This is too BIG of an event to not be rejoicing. It would be crazy not to be rejoicing and giving praise to God for this amazing event.
Be ready for advent Sunday #2!
PS. Here is last week’s benediction. It was so nice that I had to use it. It was written by Bruce Prewer based on Isaiah 9:2-7
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
those who lived in deepest night, are lit up with a brilliant sight.
Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.
The spread of his influence and of his peace will never end.
Therefore, go out into the world with great joy,
and the grace of Bethlehem’s matchless Child,
the love of the God who never ceases to amaze,
and the fellowship of the Spirit who never wearies,
will be with you this holy night and evermore.
Thanks be to God!
