    Rebekah, thanks for this insightful message that reminds us that The CHRISTMAS story is about more than a cute baby in a manger. It challenges us to continue our lives as transformational lives continuing the message of Jesus as we seek “justice for all” and not for “just us”.
    Thank you for that challenging Christmas message!

      Your welcome, Mattie! It takes courage to take a stand for everyone, and not just ourselves. It’s not always popular, but definitely more connectional.

    Hi Rebekah. It was so good to see you last week. I attended two of those ‘cute’ services you spoke about. They filled me with wonder, refreshed my soul with the traditions of the ages. Singing the carols joyfully pronouncing the birth of Christ in a world where doing so would have been a death sentence made me sing even louder. Were I to add to the sermon I would have spoke of the Christian genocide in the very birthplace of Christianity. Of how the birth of Christ has been reduced to a pc happy holidays. With Christ banned from our public lives. To me the traditions and wonder of Christmas is so much more than cute. Teach the politics in seminars, throughout the year, whenever. Let us celebrate the wonder and joyfulness of the birth of the son of God with passion. And renew our prayers for those being slaughtered for there beliefs. Blessing from Rawlins where we are free to say, “Merry Christmas”!
