MAKING ROOM FOR CHRISTMAS
Sundays, December 2-23
“Joy to the world! The Lord is come!” Someone put on the ritz, because Jesus is here! Imagine if the King of Kings and Lord of Lords showed up at your door – you’d probably break out the good china, set the table and ask a few questions. The hospitality would be a natural response to His arrival. And yet He has arrived – He came to this earth as an infant, Emmanuel, God with us. Responding to Him in our lives today means a posture of hospitality – making space in a crowded, noisy world. We need to make room not just to welcome God’s word, but to welcome strangers, the marginalized and to celebrate the true Light of the World.
Sundays, December 30 – January 27
Scripture tells us of the “sweet aroma of Christ” that comes with being deeply rooted in Jesus, from those living with intentionality and hope. It is the fragrance of a life rooted in relationship with Jesus and with hope for the world. How to live this life is a question the church has asked in many iterations and seasons. This month, we will explore ancient practices with modern applications that are rooted in scripture and encourage each person in the community of faith to engage with the One who loves them most.
