This first Sunday of Christmas, Deacon Lynn gives a message entitled, “Guided by the Spirit.” She shares that we are actually into the twelve days of Christmas now, which started December 25th. We may be tired of waiting, but compared to Simeon and Anna we haven’t been waiting long; Anna probably waited sixty years for her Savior before she got to hold him in her arms. Bottom line: the Creator of the Universe chose to take human form and dwell among us. Christ was truly born for this.
