    Where is the Church?
    Where is the Church?  Are we sitting around waiting for something to happen, watching the current environment before we are willing to do anything, or are we looking to the Lord, ready to "get out of the boat" and be what God is calling us to be?

Trouble At the Inn

Christmas is by far the most interesting holiday we celebrate.  We work up to it for more than a month; in fact if you walk into almost any retail store after Halloween you’ll find that we work up to it for way, way more than a month.  Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel start televising Christmas movies at about the same time.  Some consider all of it overkill and some can’t hardly wait to listen to their favorite Christmas music.  Regardless of which side you are on, there is no denying that Christmas has consumed our thoughts, our money and our time over the last several weeks.  
It is no secret that I  love this time of the year for lots of reasons.  But there are some things about this time of the year that really get to me, and stories of children’s Christmas pageants and activities are especially meaningful to me.  This retelling has easily become my favorite children’s Christmas Pageant story of all time!  It is a story by Dina Donohue, as recounted by Joe L. Wheeler in his book Christmas in My Heart, Volume 4 (Review & Herald).  I hope you enjoy this and that it adds a special meaning to your Christmas.


Good News, Great Joy, All People

There is a verse found in Luke 2:10 that is the message from the angel to the shepherds.  The angel says, “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”  This may be one of the most hope-filled verses in the entire Christmas story.  The news is good; it will bring great joy and, here’s the best part, everyone is included.  No one is excluded.  No one can be left out.  There isn’t anyone, anywhere for ANY reason that can’t receive the good news.  EVERYONE – EVERYWHERE! So this is something that we need to take seriously.



It is an interesting word, advent.  If you look it up in the dictionary you’ll find the following definitions:  “a coming into place, view, being or use; arrival: such as the advent of spring.”  “The period beginning four Sundays before Christmas.”  “The coming of Christ into the world; incarnation and second coming.”  Of course for our purposes here at Angus Church each week now we are in the middle of the Advent Season, obviously looking forward to the arrival of Christ as a baby born in Bethlehem, incarnation, and of the promise of His second coming.  Regardless of how you look at this word, there is something to be said for every way that we use it, it has to do with a preparation of sorts.  We prepare for the advent of Spring; we prepare for the advent of our Lord.  That was the first lesson in our Advent series this past Sunday, Preparation, as we are looking at the Call of Christmas.  You can listen to the sermon on the website here if you would like.  But let’s talk for a few minutes here about what our preparation involves.
