A verse that sums up Christmas for me
Alongside our traditional Christmas services, there will be a number of services during Advent where our preachers pick out a single verse from the Christmas stories. They will then go onto explain how the verse and its contents sums up Christmas for them. For many of us there is deep familiarity about the Christmas stories which can serve to dull their impact upon us. The idea behind this series is that certain key verses will then stay with us throughout the Christmas period and help us reflect more deeply on the wonder of what God did when he sent his Son Jesus Christ into the world.
