Had the new year on my mind for last week's Jesus Boat Blog post. This was inspired by a question asked during one of the sermons of Advent and Christmas at First United Methodist St. Petersburg. (Thanks, Pastor David)
I hope to be blogging here a little more in 2011--but I will keep posting links to my Jesus Boat Blog posts as they're published.
Because of Christmas
This Christmas we remembered the blessed birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. On Christmas Eve, worshippers celebrated in festive family services, joyful praise and worship, or quiet candlelight contemplation. We gathered with family and friends or spent time serving strangers. Now the gifts are unwrapped and the leftovers are picked over. Some have already taken down their decorations. Many are glad the holiday is finally over. But a question remains to be asked:
Are we any different because of Christmas?
