 Listen to audio: December 23, 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.

On December 23, our sermon focus on the hope that is found in Christ.
