Gods Grace Has Appeared

Preacher: David Ball | Series: Christmas 2019, Trinitytide 2019 | (No video this week.)

Be Born in Us

Bible Text: Luke 2:1-20 | Preacher: Jim McCaslin | Series: Christmas 2018 | (No video for this service.)

In the second Christmas Eve message, The Rev. Canon James McCaslin paints a portrait of the parties, family get-togethers, twinkling shops that usher in Christmas. But God comes to us silently in the deep night. We should shiver in anticipation of this. The paradox is that only those who have walked in darkness are ready for the light. What we should give back to God to acknowledge this unspeakable gift is to accept the Son he offers.

The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:

Isaiah 9:1-7
Titus 2:11-14
Luke 2:1-20

A Different Kind of Peace

Bible Text: Luke 2:1-20 | Preacher: David Ball | Series: Christmas 2018 | (No video for this service.)

In this Christmas eve message, Senior Pastor David recalls musician John Lennon’s song “Give Peace a Chance,” an anthem adopted by generations of war protesters. Those protesting conflicts between nations seemed often to find angelic empowerment in the Christmas declaration of “Peace on Earth.” But the peace the angels declared was the end of the war we wage with God for our hearts. Christmas enables us to end THAT war, the one that counts most.

The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:

Isaiah 9:1-7
Titus 2:11-14
Luke 2:1-20
