For several years I’ve been writing a story each Christmas as a gift for our congregation. For those of you unable to make it to our Christmas Eve service, I want to share the story here. If you’ve got 20-30 minutes, I encourage you to get comfortable, settle in and let the story guide you in reflection of the marvelous gift of the Father in giving us His Son, Jesus.
I hope you enjoy Delivery Day
If you have a few minutes I invite you to read my 2014 Christmas short story: The Scribe Who Must Be Right. Merry Christmas!
“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” (Acts 20:35)
With these words Jesus shared the ingredient that would make for our best Christmas ever. But have you ever thought about it all from the vantage point of the members of the divine Trinity? What was the first Christmas like for them?
I offer these four messages for your reflection during this Advent season.
The Father’s Most Blessed Christmas. (John 3:16; Galatians 4:4-5) mp3
The Spirit’s Most Blessed Christmas. (selected Scriptures) mp3
The Son’s Most Blessed Christmas. (Philippians 2:5-11) mp3
Our Most Blessed Christmas. (Acts 20:35) mp3
Here’s a little story I wrote for this year’s celebration of Christ’s birth: “The Lost Shepherd.”
