December Calendar & Birthdays

How much do you love the Christmas story? Have you ever wanted to know more about it, appreciate its significance for the first audience hearing it? Join our Advent book study "Light of the World" written by Jewish scholar and professor Amy Jill Levine. Amy calls herself the "unorthodox orthodox Jewish scholar" which is a fun way to say that she practices Judaism but teaches to and for both Jewish and Christian audiences. I appreciate her scholarship, humor, and the videos I have watched of her in this series and I cannot wait to join together in this study. Together with Amy and all of you, I believe we will grow in understanding, cultural and religious awareness, and our faith around these wonderful Christmas stories that are all about Jesus who is the "Light of the World. ~Pastor Nick
