Dec 02nd     "Signs of Hope"     Luke 1:5-25
 
This is our Sunday of Hope.  We will be looking at the story of the birth of John the Baptizer and the different reactions of his parents, Zechariah and Elizabeth.  When old Zechariah is told he can't believe it, and is made unable to speak till John is born.  
 
Dec 09th     "My Soul Magnifies the Lord"     Luke 1:39-56
 
This is our Sunday of Peace.  We will look at the meeting of Mary and Elizabeth after Mary learns that she is bearing the Christ Child.  When Elizabeth gives testimony, Mary breaks into song, the "Magnificat".  
 
Dec 16th     "Songs of Joy"     Luke 1:57-80
 
This is our Sunday of Joy.  We will be looking upon the birth of John the Baptizer.  His father Zechariah names him, thus freeing him to speak again, and this time he breaks out into a song of joy.
 
Dec 23rd    "Lying in a Manger"     Luke 2:1-7
 
This is our Sunday of Love.  We find ourselves in the story of Mary and Joseph arriving in Bethlehem and finding no room in the inn.  The humble beginning is a sign of the real message of God's grace for all.
