Wishing you and yours a Christmas filled with hope, peace, love and joy as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas from the staff and volunteers of Elkhorn Hills United Methodist Church!
A Christmas prayer
Father, we stand in awe of what we celebrate. How can it be that the all-sufficient God of the universe became a helpless child resting in a feed trough?
How can it be that the divine Word reduced Himself to unintelligible sounds?
How can it be that the hands that once sculpted mountain ranges, now made flesh, reach to grab hold of a loving mother’s finger?
We don’t know. Yet it happened. Jesus came, the visible expression of the invisible God, to bring God to us and us to God.
The darkness of this world at times seems overwhelming, but in midst of the darkness we again see the Light of Christmas — the Light that cannot be overcome.
Before Him, we bow down and worship.
The prayer above is from December 24, 2012 by MethodistThinker and was adapted from the first chapter of Ken Gire’s 1989 book, Intimate Moments with the Savior (Zondervan).
