    January 6: Spiritual

                   

    Most people don’t equate repentance with the words “fresh” or “liberating.” Crying “God, have mercy on me, a sinner!” seems like a miserable way to start the year. But not according to Jesus. Jesus said that those who humbly confess their need of God’s grace (instead of self-righteously comparing themselves to others) would be justified and exalted in the eyes of God. Perhaps, then, repentance is the most liberating way to live!

    December 30: Follow The Star

                   

    Our culture emphasizes a focus on the present. “It’s the journey, not the destination”. It’s not where you’ve been or where you’re going. What is important is where you are now. But what if the destination is better than the journey? We find the answer to that question in the Wisemen who visited Jesus in Bethlehem and for many are another part of what makes for a Classic Christmas.

    December 31: "After Christmas" Perspective

               

    As the holidays wind down, we begin to wonder, "Can the peace and joy of Christmas last?" When looking at the world, it would seem entirely impossible. All too quickly we return to a broken reality vulnerable to decay in all things and death. However, through the eyes of old Simeon who met Jesus in the temple following the days of Christmas, we come to find our Savior still remains. And in Jesus, because of all he did after the holidays, peace and joy last through time and for eternity. This message on Simeon is our last Old School meditation which investigates through Luke 2:25-35 how peace and joy always remain in Christ no matter what comes after Christmas.
