Listen to audio: December 2, 2012 AM Sermon

If you want to read the story of Jesus’ birth, you will probably look to the gospels of Matthew or Luke.  There you find the stories of angels, shepherds, wise men, and a stable.  You wouldn’t read Mark, because that gospel begins with Jesus’ ministry, and skips the story of His birth altogether.  You probably would not read John, even though his gospel does contain a unique telling of the story of Christmas.  This year, during the season of Advent, we will consider John’s unique telling of the Christmas narrative.

December 2 is the first Sunday of Advent, and our message focuses on John’s words that tell us Jesus was with God from the beginning of time.
