The Untold Stories of Christmas
November 27 “The Angel Gabriel”
Scripture: Luke 1:5-24
Throughout the Scriptures, angels are messengers. How might God might send a message today: phone call, blog post text, email, Twitter? Or is there something about needing someone like Gabriel? What part of the message is in the messenger?
December 4 “Elizabeth and Zechariah”
Scripture: Luke 1:57-66
In our first Advent scripture, we learned that Elizabeth and Zechariah are an old couple who have been unable to have a child and yet in their old age, Elizabeth becomes pregnant. Today’s scripture gives voice to a forlorn hope. Holy Communion Sunday.
December 11 Cantata Sunday
"Song of Emmanuel”
Mary: Luke 1:26-38
On Cantata Sunday we will also hear Mary’s song from scripture. Known as the “Magnificant,” it expresses something we often overlook in the Christmas story: Mary’s devotion and her willingness to serve.
December 18 The Inn Keeper:
“There is Room at our Inn”
Scripture: Luke 2:8-20
Is there room in our lives for something as surprising and inconvenient as new life? The Inn Keeper often gets a bad rap; let’s look to this part of the story to see how sometimes… something is better than nothing…. God can use any opening in our hearts.
December 25 Christmas Day
Scripture: Luke 2:1-7
What did the Shepherds do after sunrise of Christmas day? We will celebrate Holy Communion and sing all the carols we didn’t sing on Christmas Eve.
No nursery provided Christmas Day.
