Invitation
 
 
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. Luke 2:11 If I were giving this picture a title it would be “Invitation.” Each time I pass this spot on the trail the table seems to beacon me to pause for a visit. As we enter the Advent Season, I would like to invite you to participate in the various opportunities of celebrating Jesus’ birth.
Woodland Christmas Dinner – Saturday, December 1 (TOMORROW!) @ 6pm – Ham Dinner with all the fixins, Live Christmas Music, Christmas Crafts for Children and a special guest visitor Advent Celebration in Worship– each Sunday of December at 9:30am. We will have readings by: 1st Sunday – Isaiah 2nd Sunday – Mary 3rd Sunday – Shepherd 4th Sunday – Angel WELL Center Preschool Christmas Play – Sunday, December 9 at 7pm Christmas Eve Candlelight Service and Luminaries – Monday, Dec 24 at 7pm
But more importantly, I want you to accept the invitation from God to embrace this Christmas Season as a celebration of the hope, love, joy and peace that is offered to us through the birth of the Christ Child.
Think about it… What do you need the most in your life this very moment: Hope, Love, Joy or Peace? Really! Think about it. Are you in despair – needing hope, alone – in need of Love, sad – in need of joy, chaos – in need of peace? Jesus came to earth gave his life so that you might have eternal life but also so you could live a blessed and fulfilled life on this earth as well.
What’s more, there is no limit! You can have all 4 of these gifts. All you need to do to claim them is accept Christ’s invitation to be Lord of your life. (Luke 2:11)
Surrendering to Christ, Greg
