Only LOVE could write the Christmas Story!

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. - Luke 2:19-20
Our 2009 Christmas Sermon series and Christmas Musical is titled "Only Love." We are studying and celebrating how God could only write the Christmas story. He also could only write such a story in the power of love. With God, only love could write such a story.

Just ponder for a moment: A God who humbled Himself, a young couple who clung to one another, a motley group of lowly shepherds. All this, and more. Angels who sang in the heavens, wise men who followed a star, and the humble babe lying in a manger from which animals normally ate. What more could we ask from a story? Not a thing. And it reminds us, in the shallowness of the materialism and glitter of our times, of those things that really matter. God, family, our responsibility for others. Christmas. Can any word be more beautiful than that one? Christmas, a celebration of love.

God loves you and me so much that he came as a baby....you know I love ya - Don
