• Barns & Nobles – Luke 2.1-20

    Flattening the Hills

    Last week we read about the noble wise men. This week we read about shepherds. Wise men don’t usually hang out with shepherds.  And gods don’t usually hang out with men.

    God is not ashamed to make his home among us. Why should we be ashamed to spend time with one another?

    Part of the meaning of Christmas is that in Christ, all barriers that we think are important – rich, poor, weak, strong, disabled, differently-abled, black, white (and every other beautiful shade of brown) – are forever erased.

    The Villains of Christmas

    I love Christmas time. At our home, we watch a Christmas movie nearly every night in December. Some Christmas movies are good for a few laughs, others make me cry, and others are totally ridiculous. Christmas movies make a lot of money, I’m sure, because Hollywood keeps cranking them out.
