Sermon: A Very Different Christmas

There are some messages which can't be easy be shared in the holiday season of Christmas.  The birth of Jesus is so filled with tradition, to think of what might have actually happened based on Middle Eastern culture and the writings of the Bible, can be hard.  

In this message some of your traditional images of Christmas will be challenged, but hopefully it will open you up to what God is doing in the world.  What's wrong with the way you think about Christmas?

Luke 2:7  And [Mary] gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
