For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9 v 6.
The Sunday before Christmas is a busy one in any church – this morning I got this shot just before our Sunday school carol service. Its a beautiful window – to know Christ and make him known, is the message at the bottom.
At the front of the church are the advent candles and of course one of them has been lit each Sunday for the last 4 weeks. Its not quite Christmas yet – its all about the anticipation and looking forward to the day.
over the pulpit in a central place is the very core of the message. Its deliberately not quite in focus here – lets face it, the way we celebrate Christmas doesn’t exactly bring the real meaning of Christmas into sharp focus.
God with us.
