Bible Text: Luke 2:1-20 | Preacher: Nathan Willard Jesus's birth story reminds us of our opportunity, every day, to be better than we could be, better than we ought to be, more welcoming, more loving, less afraid. Can we take up the challenge?
Bible Text: Isaiah 7:10-16 | Preacher: Nathan Willard Ahaz seeks comfort from his prophet Isaiah. Isaiah provides the reassuring messages that Ahaz's enemies will be destroyed, but as we look back on further events, we see that there is no peace in violent destruction. Can we look forward to a life built on God's love, rather than on the hope of violence?
