Dear Friends,

DECEMBER 2018

Has Christmas lost its wonder for you? I hope not but life has a way of robbing us of its wonder. Hard times, pain, sorrow and despair can overshadow our hope and deplete ourpositive energy. But along comes “good news” that sparks the deep, enduring truth that God is not finished redeeming his people. “For the people, walking in darkness have seen a great light: on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2 NIV). Thepromised messiah is on the move, the plan of God has not faltered for a moment. The adventof the Christ has not diminished in the least. Come wonder with me what is next in God’splan. Wonder what is next in your heart, your family, your community. Join with others in Bible study, devotions, and our Sunday worship as we consider the wonder of the star, thename of Jesus, a manger and God’s promise.

Open yourself to wonder . Intentionally seek amazing possibilities to what God is do-ing. Allow yourself to dream again, to laugh out loud, to cry, hurt and heal. It is “a wonder- ful life” that is sometimes hidden in broken dreams and heartache.

Wonder requires effort, striving, seeking, even risking. Wonder requires forgiveness and letting go of the past. Wonder is an uncharted journey that causes us to wander, to ask directions, to follow crazy stars that go the wrong direction and disappear and reappear.

Wondering is not for wimps. Invite the spirit of Christmas, the Holy Spirit to lead you in truth to the place of the holy encounter. Come let us journey together to the humblemanger in the town of the King revealed to us in God’s divine revelation.

Please see the opportunities set forth in this newsletter (worship, Bible studies & de- votions). Also, please join Elise and I as we open our parsonage home for you to visit on Sunday, December 16th, from 2 -4 PM. Thank you for this beautiful home to live in. Have a blessed Christmas.

Sincerely in Christ,

John K. Jefferis
