If you’re like me, you go through the holiday season wondering what in the world is causing all this hype and stress! With only so much time, energy, and resources, why is my tendency to spend money I don’t have (on people I do like) for things they don’t need? But then I remember – there is a great cause of celebration. “The Word became flesh” is how the apostle John puts it. God – the Creator of the universe – Ultimate Mystery born such that you could hold him in one hand. “God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God…who for us and our salvation came down from heaven.” As the Nicene Creed puts it.
So wherever you are, we invite you to experience some wonder… of the deeper meanings, mysteries, and celebration in the midst of it all by joining us at one of our many Christmas gatherings: worship, children, youth, even just Christmas Eve. Come hear the message of hope, love, joy, and peace in a new and uplifting way. And above it all, maybe even a whisper of the angels singing “Gloria to God in the highest, and peace on earth.” And that’s not hype. That’s simply Good News we get to experience beyond belief.
