“Christmas Un-Cut” – Luke 1:26-38 and Matthew 1:18-25

Christmas-Uncut

Here’s a quiz for you…… How many of the 25 most popular Christmas songs in the U.S. have something to do with Jesus? If you guessed one, you are, according to Wikipedia, correct! And that song is………..(drum roll)…….
“Little Drummer Boy.” Well, I guess in between the “pa, rum, pa, pum, pums” there are a couple mentions of baby Jesus who, we are told, smiled at that little drummer boy. And what book of the Bible was all that in?!

This Sunday we’re going to look at an Un-cut Christmas story from the perspective of Matthew and Luke. We’re going to learn what God was doing in a scene typically cut from the local church nativity play and not ever mentioned in any of the Christmas songs you’ve heard. Everything that God did at that time over 2,000 years ago had eternal significance and is worthy of our consideration.

SPECIAL NOTE: All the songs we’ll sing this week focus on our Lord’s first advent, as we give God praise for His glorious grace.

Christian formation classes start at 9:15 AM and Worship is at 10:30 AM. Invite someone to church this week!

Credit to Carl Laferton for the sermon title, taken from his book that caught my eye a couple weeks back.  A great book on Christmas for those who don’t know the whole story.
