Christmas 2018 at Grace Chapel

If there's one gift our world needs this Christmas, it might be hope. And we need it, too.
More than wishful thinking, we yearn to believe that our lives can be good, that our world can be mended, that injustice will not prevail. Where can we find that kind of hope? We've been disappointed; we've learned to be careful with our trust.
And yet a star leads us, still, to Bethlehem--where the hopes and fears of every year come together and a child's birth changes what is possible.

*On the 16th, we take a break from our regular Sunday preaching to hear the Christmas story told as a first person dramatic monologue, from the perspective of a historical, biblical character. You don't want to miss it!
