2 days after Christmas quick reflections

When the angel appeared to the Shepherds in Luke 2:10-11, we often pick up on the bright lights and fear. I find it noteworthy that, beyond he/r calming their fear, s/he lays out much of the gospel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This baby is

  • Good News
  • Joy
  • For all people
  • A Savior
  • Messiah (promised one)
  • the Lord (God)
  • For You (each one of you)

I like this video and that it has lettering.


The Christmas letter from Stefan, Beth, Jeremiah, and Titus Helm had good words and the question, “How does your heart respond to the amazing truth that God came as a man and lived among us?”

 

 

The Story of the Other Wise Man

The Story of the Other Wise Man has brought joy and meaning to myself and my family for many years.

I highly recommend reading this small book.

It is a legend of a fourth wise man (a scholar as the three wise men), who also studied the prophesies and the stars and set out to find and honor the new king.

The book and audio reading of the book (by Henry van Dyke) are available online.

Here is an Audio Recording of the story. (.m4a file) (On an iPad, you may need to download it.)
