Grace and peace!
She told the story slowly, sure of every detail: The stable had one cow and three sheep. The shepherds were scared but happy. The wise men rode camels and only had peanut butter sandwiches to eat. The woman rode on the donkey, the man walked in front, and the baby was inside the woman.
“And do you know who the baby was?” she asked, her five-year-old eyes growing wide. “The baby was God!”
Then she spun around in a circle, arms spread wide, and buried her head in the couch cushions. Which may be the best response to such improbable, wonderful news. from “Alive Now”
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Come to worship to hear the improbable, wonderful news of God’s birth among us, God’s life among us, God’s great love for us, no matter what! Services at WFC are at 5:00 and 7:30; there is a Community Service at the Old Brick Church at 11:00. On Christmas morning, Paul Hoffman will lead a casual worship service over breakfast in the fellowship hall at 9:30.
If you can’t make it to Christmas Eve or Christmas services, make sure you take some time to hear or tell the story again: The baby was God! And may your heart be thrilled and delighted by this astounding Good News.
Blessings to you all!
