Christmas 2017

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE

2017 CHRISTMAS SERIES

During the month of December, the sun rises later and sets earlier than any other month of the year. As we literally experience the darkest time of year, we can see an unnerving parallel to the dark state of the world we live in. During the Christmas season, the darkness is alleviated by the many lights and decorations that garnish our neighborhoods and city streets. These bright decorations serve as another parallel, reminding us that the central truth of Christmas is the coming of the light of the world. However, our culture has done all it can to keep the truth of Christmas hidden.

We want to invite you to see what we see when we consider Christmas. Join us as we dig into the truth of Christmas and reveal many of the truths about what the birth of Jesus meant for the world then, and still means for us today.
