Journey To Bethehem

Advent Sermon Series ~ Journeying to Bethlehem

Each Christmas is a journey!  We make it from wherever we are to the manger.  Mary and Joseph journeyed from Nazareth to Bethlehem on the First Christmas.  What will our journey be like?  Are there helps along the way?  How do we really prepare to receive the King? Let’s see how we might journey together so that this Christmas we find the true reason for the season — the child Jesus!

Dec. 2 Sermon – Mary of Nazareth:  Journey of Faith – Luke 1:26-38

Christmas is about miracles, love, giving, family, friends, presents.  But the first Christmas didn’t have any of these but a miracle and love.  For Mary, Christmas was a surprise that required of her a lot of FAITH.  How many of us would believe an angel?  How could we even know what an angel is and looks like?  And the message, a virgin will birth a baby?  Now that does take FAITH!  Let’s learn from Mary about how FAITH is needed and helps to bring about a holy Christmas for each of us.

This sermon is now available on the Pender Sermon Podcast series and on the home page of PenderUMC.org
