Topic: Christmas Scripture: Exodus 33:18–33:23
Advice begins with “If you want this to happen, then do this…” A fairytale begins with “Once upon a time” A proverb begins with “A wise man once said” But news begins with, “Something has happened!”, which is why the angels declared, “Behold! I bring you good tidings of great joy!” They had great news to share! News is a report about what has already been done. News urges you to recognise something has already happened and to respond to it. News says, someone else has acted. The Christmas story is a part of history and this Christmas, we are 'beholding’ the Truth of Christmas as declared by and through the lens of Christ the Prophet.
