You don't give up on getting that last minute shopping done for Christmas, do you? Don't forget to get some last minute inviting in for the Christmas services. Make that call or send that email or walk across the room and give out that invitation. It could make an eternal difference in someone's life.
The gist of the Christmas message I'm giving this year is this: Those of us who have heard and received the message of Christmas sometimes have trouble understanding why everyone would not respond to the good news or even investigate it. We'll look at two reasons: it has been poorly demonstrated by Christians and it has been poorly explained. The hope is that before everyone leaves we will all have a better understanding of the gospel and that the basics of the message will be clear.
Don't be late, we have a great opening to the service and lots of singing of Christmas carols throughout.
