Christmas Eve

 

It’s ironic that the Advent/Christmas season, given its emphasis on stillness and on contemplation leading up to this silent and holy night, can be so stressful. We gather with people whom we love dearly around the same table who might share very different feelings from us. About things like, for instance, the presidential impeachment process. And so we grit our teeth and we sing “Frosty the Snowman” to ourselves while we pass the gravy boat. But in truth there can be no greater antidote for that quibbling than what we are doing right now. Whoever is in the Oval Office, we tonight agree together that there is only one upon whom all authority finally rests. And it is this Son who has been given to us. [To hear the entire sermon, click on the arrow above.]
