The Christmas Sermons

Sermons from Christmas Eve and Day will be live here on December 26th, 2011. Blessed Nativity of the Christ to you and yours, and God's blessings to you in the New Year of our Lord, 2012.

It's helpful to note that I do a sermon tie-in at the communion that connects the sacrament to the word proclaimed in the message. One in particular I'll highlight here, that during the communion for Christmas Day I mentioned that the John 1 and Hebrew 1 texts challenge us to do more than speak of Christ as the one who is our Savior. He is also the one through whom all things were made, and the one who restores the image and "very being" of God (Hebrews 1) in us.

So if asked, we could say that Christ restores the image of God in us, or is the one who as the promised one of Israel's God continues to create all things. Try it out. Merry Christmas.
