The First Christmas Service
God uses ordinary people to accomplish His will. Even though Jesus was born both fully human and fully divine, His beginnings were quite ordinary. Born in a stable with only a few animals and shepherds to celebrate His arrival, we are reminded that God works differently than we would sometimes like. God's plan is not always easy or fun or celebrated, but it is still God's plan. Let us worship as the shepherds did, with joyful and humble hearts.
