There's a word hiding behind all the stories Matthew and Luke tell about the birth of Christ. It may be one of the brightest, most hopeful words anyone ever spoke or heard. We will discover it in this Sunday's message.
I felt strangely at home right away. Felt peace, love, acceptance and grace. . . They smiled at me, said hi, welcomed me: all with a great sense of sincerity.
I saw a new approach to worship and I felt God like I hadn’t for a while. It didn’t take me more than a few Sundays for me to feel at home.
I felt like it gave me the best opportunity to bring a non-believer or wayward believer with a different background or religious upbringing and them feel at home and interested in reconnecting with God or maybe connecting for the first time.
