Christmas Is… Joy

Date 23rd December 2012  by Ettiene de Witte  Bible passage Luke 2:8-20

The Kids@Church children will be presenting the wonderful Christmas story as a play and in song. Christmas has a special appeal with the story of shepherds and wisemen, with stars and angels.

We may often be faced with some common hang-ups with the authority of the Bible when it comes to why we believe what we believe. Who hasn’t heard these sorts of remarks: “Why believe something that was written so long ago?” “Times have changed, move on.” “Can we believe that what was said and done
