God’s Presence; The Christ is Born

Have you ever had a frustrating Christmas?   Sometimes we struggle with feelings of disappointment when the holiday doesn’t provide for us what we thought, or hoped, it might.

There’s something about the birth of Christ that really can remind us about what it means that God is with us.  The presence of God in the world and in our lives is far greater than any other present we may get or give to others.

This Sunday, we’ll be looking at Luke 2:1-20, and we’ll consider what it can mean to us that God is present with us.  As you read the story, what are the challenges that are faced, and what can we learn about the nature of God’s invasion of this earth from them?

See you Sunday!

  1. So are the three wise men the shephards? I know I should probably know this but I get confused…. or are the shephards different or did the three wisemen get made up by hallmark? (I feel dumb for asking and not knowing this but oh well….)

  2. The account of the wise men is found in Matthew chapter 2 ( http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt%202&version=ESV )

    Luke didn’t include their story, choosing instead to view the local reaction instead of the larger, national impact.

    There are no dumb questions…EVER.
