We live in unprecedented times. The COVID pandemic has turned us upside down with its disruptions of our economy and our social fabric. Our nation is in near chaos with all the political shenanigans that are happening in Washington. Yes, these are unprecedented times. But it was in such times as these over 2000 years ago when God came down to earth in the form of an infant and was born to Mary and Joseph in a humble manger in Bethlehem. Since then, we have a hope that transcends all chaos and craziness this world can throw at us. Since then, we have a light that shines in the darkness and that the darkness of this world cannot overcome. Since then, we have life and have it so abundantly that even death cannot defeat it. Yes, these are unprecedented times, but God is with us. Christ will be born again in that humble manger and in the humbleness of each of our hearts this Christmas morning. It may be a Christmas unlike any we have ever experienced and one that we hope never to experience again, but it is Christmas. Christ is born, Christ is living, and Christ will surround you and comfort you and bring you and those you love joy this Christmas season. From our home to your home, we wish you a Merry Christmas.
-Pastors Mark and Beth
John 1:4-5: In him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
