Christmas is something worth celebrating! See God’s perfect plan in action using imperfect people!

Something Worth Celebrating Logo

In the wake of many wanting to leave any religious basis for our “winter holidays” behind, a closer look at the events surrounding the first Christmas reveals that there is a lot to celebrate! Forget the commercialization of Christmas, forget the “war on Christmas”, forget those who question the historical events claiming that they were made up to oppress people, forget all of the negativity we might go through with challenging people during this time of the year. Put all that aside and explore again what these events are all about:

  • God the Son loving us so much that He set aside His own glory as the Creator God and entering our humanity.
  • God working in miraculous ways for ordinary people’s lives and including them in His eternal plan.
  • God working in spite of great obstacles and opposition and touching lives with love, kindness and compassion.

In this Advent series we will study the lives of key people — some well known and some not-so-well-known — see the work of God in their lives and see what that might have to do with each of us. We will study some of the historical background and ask — so what? What difference does all that have to do with me and life today.
