A Story Born Again

Worship Series December 1, 2019 - January 5, 2020

A Story Born Again…and Again…and Again…
Advent/Christmas 2019

Jesus’ birth is considered amongst the greatest stories in history. These stories are filled with drama and intrigue. They are filled with moments of great pain and great joy. They are filled with characters we understand and connect with. These stories include flawed individuals who receive calls beyond their imagination. There are kings who kneel before peasants. There are messengers of God who ignite fear and imagination.

There is a baby, whose birth should not have been noticed by anyone beyond his family. And yet, his birth attracted the attention of kings and peasants alike. His birth created movement in the stars. His birth brought voice to the voiceless and hope to the hopeless. His is a birth story. And through his story, we find our own birth stories. We find our stories of grace, courage, wonder and beyond. Through his story, we are born again…and again…and again.
