Hooray! The Christmas season is here!

This is a great time to hear the story of the birth of Jesus (obviously). But my prayer this year is for us to hear this familiar story in a whole new way. Yes we know it… Yes we like it… But do we fully grasp the magnitude of the event. I know that I don’t.

This week we will hear about 3 girls and a baby. Actually they are not all girls, but they all did have babies. To prepare for this week, read Genesis 21:1-7, Luke 1:5-25 and Luke 1:26-38– and hear about Sarah, Elizabeth, and Mary. As you read, see if you can discover how there stories are alike. How are they different? What do they mean for you, today?

I’m looking forward to going through these familiar stories and I’m excited about how God will reveal some new things that can give us hope, confidence and excitement this Christmas season.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,
