Christmas is arguably the most widely celebrated f all the world’s holidays, involving more people and nations than any other.  But at the same time, it is perhaps the most misunderstood of all our major holidays.  Christmas honors a divine person and remembers a divine event; it does not celebrate human achievement, but divine accomplishment.  Crowed shopping malls, office parties, alcohol consumption, gift giving, holiday decorations, and family get-togethers do not reflect the true meaning of Christmas.  There is noting man-made about the Christmas story.  It is the most miraculous, compelling narrative in history.  As the Holy Spirit relates the dramatic story of Jesus’ birth.  Those who truly celebrate Christmas do so by remembering the profound reality tat God sent His only Begotten Son to die for the sins of all who put their faith in Him.  Join us this Sunday, December 24 at 10:30 am as we explore Luke 1:26-38 as we are reminded of the preparation for the first Christmas!
