It’s December. The tree is up, the carols are playing and it’s cold outside. It feels like the Christmas season has officially arrived. Yesterday, Mike Lamb preached about having a “different” Christmas (without stress and without succumbing to the pressures surrounding us) remembering why Jesus came. I want to take that challenge.
I am so grateful for the amazing and incredible difference the birth of Jesus has made in my life! I’ve often thought about what life must have been like for Mary, Jesus’ mother – and the difference his birth made in her life. Over ten years ago one of the regions asked me to share some of these thoughts for a Christmas service. Last year I found the video footage (amidst some other “antiques”) that someone had made for me. Thanks, Jeff. Though the footage (and acting) is somewhat rough, I hope this can help you connect, perhaps in a different way, to the birth of Jesus – Through His Mother’s Eyes. Sending a special thanks to Anthony Ciotti, Ali Mackall and Diana Mouzakis for the songs they sang – clips of which I included, as well as some added background guitar by Phillip Lester (check out his Christmas music) and a short clip from the Crossroads Singers).

May you have a wonderful and life-changing December that draws you closer and closer to Jesus.( I’ve been asked for this script. Though it’s copyrighted, I would be very happy to send it to you if you contact me.)
