The Art of Joyfully Receiving

Luke 2:1-20

In the familiar Christmas story we see how radically personal the birth of Jesus really is: “For to us a child is born.” This is the gift of Christmas, the gift that has changed the world. But - just like any gift - the gift of Christmas must be received. And in our independence-valuing culture, simply receiving isn’t as easy as it might sound. Listen in to learn how you can experience Jesus this Christmas in a new and fresh way.

A Big Ask

1 Thessalonians 5:12-18

Another year is over, and a new one has begun. 
As we wrap up 2018 and step into 2019, let’s remember all the ways God has blessed us and consider what it would mean to live with with acceptance and gratitude going into a new year. 
It’s a big ask, but one necessary to find serenity and peace within all the complexities of what it means to be the body of Christ and a beacon of hope to the world watching.
