The Quiet Moments in the Mess

Even when things are hectic and frazzled, there can be moments of calm in the middle of the chaos. When we look at the messiness of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, we can still see at least a moment of beauty and serenity and peace in the middle of the mess...because that's what God has always done. He quiets the storms. He calms the chaos. He even cleans up the mess.

Scripture References: Luke 5:10, Mark 5:34, Mark 4:39, Luke 2:16, Matthew 1:23, Luke 23:34

From Series: "Messy Christmas"

We often have lofty expectations when it comes to Christmas - perfect decorations, fun parties and celebrations, just the right gift for that friend or family member. The reality is that our Christmases are often messy - travel plans don't work out, the gift that was delivered isn't the one we ordered, family isn't getting along, kids are sick or acting crazy...or both! Something that is supposed to be beautiful and peaceful ends up being ugly and chaotic and...messy. This Christmas we want to discover or (re-discover) the amazing story of the perfect Baby that was born into our imperfect world, the perfect Savior that came to rescue us from the messes we get ourselves into. We invite you to join us as we invite Him into our mess!
