For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16-17

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:6-8

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 10:10b

Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.

John Wesley

Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.

Elisabeth Elliot

True faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God’s fidelity to His Promises.

Francis Chan

Jesus is Christmas?

Every year it feels like the commercialism of Christmas starts earlier and earlier. From the End of October / early November our shops are being filled with trees, tinsel and laser lights, our facebook feeds get flooded with Jesus is the reason for the season pictures, with the odd statements about keeping Christ in Christmas thrown in for good measure, but have you ever stopped to ask yourself why? Why do we say it to ourselves every year? Why do we celebrate? Why do we make a big deal about December 25th? I mean it is not really Jesus birthday*.

 

So why does the church and faith communities make a big deal about it. Well that is what we are exploring at Brookside leading up to December 25th, Christmas Day.

So why not join us as we unpack how Jesus’ birth is about how God is in control.
