    based on 38 ratings

    Christmas in July

    based on 17 ratings

    "You brood of Vipers!" and still they come.

    What do we do with this John the Baptist? Here is the third Sunday in a row with him. Such a strange man. "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?" Heaping abuse on the people. And still they came in droves to be baptized. John had that charisma that attracted people more

    based on 18 ratings

For all of the noble and pure motives that we claim we’d be awful disappointed if there wasn’t anything under more

    Contributed by Ed Mcneely on Dec 4, 2002
    based on 24 ratings

It is… Ÿ More than a baby in a manger; Ÿ More than shepherds and angels; Ÿ Even more than Wise men traveling 2 years bearing gifts. Christmas is when… the living Son of God… Ÿ Stepped out of his glory... more

    based on 44 ratings

    Five viewpoints of what would have happened if Jesus had not been born.

    What If Jesus Had Not Been Born? Luke 2:1-20 INTRO. I’m amazed at how our society is trying to de-Christianize everything, including Christmas.

    based on 61 ratings

    Christmas Eve parable -- kind of silly and serious at the same time -- poking a little fun at my own Scandinavian heritage. From the beginning the trained observers have failed to recognize the significance of the Nativity.
