President’s December Newsletter
Happy Advent! As the birth of the Christ child draws near, we also anticipate his second coming. Prepare your hearts this season by listening to our graduate and student Aaron Keyes and Taylor Breen sing “Lord Jesus Come.”
What really were the dynamics of the first Christmas? Hallmark and Santa Clause have all but totally hijacked the Christmas season. When we really investigate the true story of Christmas we find a story dripping with scandal, surrender, sacrifice and social revolution.
The Church is currently in the season of Advent where it is awaiting the coming of Jesus into the world. If the Church is to let the Kingdom take root then it will have to embrace and be encouraged by the reality of how the real Christmas Story took root.
