It’s amazing! After 30 years, it’s still new every year, and never palls. I mean preaching the Christmas Message – and I don’t mean that I’m happy to recycle the same emotions, and teachings, and challenges, every time the silly season comes around. I LOVE it – almost live for the opportunity to seek God’s way for us to hear the message this year. So this year the theme is centred around the idea that a Door opens between the Divine and the Human in the events of Christmas – Advent being a remembering of hope in our community.
So follow the development of the message of God’s wide open grace to us, as it shows up in the promise, birth, and celebration of the Infant Messiah – and of His immense importance in our humble lives.
