Home For Christmas (Christmas Day)

Featuring Vineyard Worship Posted on November 9, 2016

The Heart Has A Home CD 226

It is Christmas Day, and the Light of all humankind shines brightly on us all! In the first chapter of his Gospel, the apostle John retells in microcosm the story of Genesis, the beginning of humankind – only this time, through the lens of Christ. John’s vision of Christ is perhaps the highest we have in the Scriptures. For John, Jesus is the everlasting “Word,” the “Word made flesh,” the One through whom “all things were made,” and the “Light of all mankind.” Later, John will call him the “Alpha and the Omega,” the “First and the Last,” and the “Beginning and the End” ... more

The story of Little Orphan Annie has intrigued generations of readers for almost a century. The 10-year-old orphan with curly red hair is loved and cared for by “Daddy” Warbucks, a wealthy benefactor who has come to treasure Annie. Clever and feisty, Annie triumphs over all manner of trouble with quick-thinking and the loving support of her caregiver.

The Heart Comes Home – To Love (Fourth Sunday Of Advent)

For a moment, think about what you saw or read in your social media newsfeed over this past year. For the last 365 days, we woke up to news that made us laugh (cute kitten videos) or warmed our hearts (a newborn baby). We also woke up to interpersonal, national, and international news that shocked us, frightened us, or offended us. Each morning many of us turn on our mobile phones before having even one moment of silent reflection with God. When we do, we leave ourselves unguarded as a parade of injustice, violence, argument, and division – all publicly displayed on social media – assaults our emotions to start the day. Remaining “in the vine,” as Jesus taught His disciples in John 15, becomes ever more important as we walk as God’s people through times that are troubling ... more

The Heart Comes Home – To Joy (Third Sunday Of Advent)

The Heart Has A Home CD 226

 Apparently, God loves a good party. From the divinely-commanded feasts of the ancient Hebrews, to Jesus’ first miracle happening at a wedding reception, it seems that the God of the interstellar fireworks has a penchant for celebration. Weddings are “parties with a purpose.” After the ceremony and formal rituals of marital union are performed, well-dressed partiers of all ages typically join in a meal, a dance, and a time of festivity that rivals few others. In our time, constricting ties are loosened, and high heels are kicked off for a few hours of remembering that life is fleeting, and some parties should be embraced when they come along ... more

The Heart Comes Home – To Peace (Second Sunday Of Advent)

The Heart Has A Home CD 226

 In the Christmas story so familiar to us all, there is one woman who gets most of the attention – Mary. As the mother of Jesus, this young girl courageously resists all ridicule to be found faithful to what she has seen and heard. Mary is iconic, a feminine vision of faith and trust in God for all the ages. In John’s Gospel, however, Mary is only mentioned twice – once when she asks Jesus for some practical help with a little wedding-wine- wonder-working (John 2:1-11), and the second time, at the foot of the cross, where Jesus asks John to care for her as he would his own mother (John 19:26-27). A different woman takes center stage in John’s Gospel, with almost an entire chapter devoted to her encounter with the “Word-made-flesh.” ... more

Perhaps the most famous passage in the Gospel of John – even in the Bible itself – is John 3:16. We see the verse reference on banners, being waved enthusiastically behind the goal posts at professional football games, and on the bumpers of countless cars. But what do these words mean, and how do they speak of Advent? “For God so loved the world...” that “He gave...” are phrases that reveal two fundamental characteristics of the God of Christmas ... more

Perhaps no theme is more resonant and present in Christmas literature - and throughout the literature of humankind – than the theme of coming “home.” In our most popular stories, people are always – either physically or metaphorically - wandering from home, looking for home, coming back home, or feeling at home ... more
