Christmas Personified – Our Human Hunger

Picking up his Advent theme again this week (our Children’s Christmas Play was last Sunday), Pastor Ken begin’s this installment of ‘Christmas Personified’ with a somewhat dark tale. However, later on he bridges to Charlie Brown’s Christmas.  The Scripture passages for today are taken from Luke and Matthew.

Christmas Personified – Angels Announced

For the second Sunday of Advent, Pastor Ken looks deeper into Christmas in the series entitled “Christmas Personified”.  Christmas is many things – a time for gift giving, a time to spend with friends and family, but Christmas is not just an event; Christmas is a person.  Ken helps us understand this by putting Christ back into Christmas.  Scripture is taken from Malachi 4, Matthew 1 and Luke 1, 2.
