Ladies, we are wrapping up this year’s theme of The Art of Graceful Living by inviting you to A Touch of Grace at 6:00 on Sunday evening, December 6th in the Family room at Father’s House. This will be a dress up affair with elegant décor, food, fellowship and a focus on the grace that was brought to us through Jesus Christ.
Several of our ladies will be giving demonstrations during our meal on various ways you can include graceful living in your Holiday plans. Susan will be sharing the Christmas story along with a few ideas on how to honor the Grace Giver. This is one of those Heart to Hearts where inviting a friend might be a good idea! Just RSVP by calling the office so we know how much food to prepare and how many special gifts will be needed.
“In the birth stories of Luke and Matthew, only one person seems to grasp the mysterious nature of what God has set in motion: the old man Simeon, who recognized the baby as the Messiah, instinctively understood that conflict would surely follow. ‘This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against…’ he said, and then made the prediction that a sword would pierce Mary’s own soul. Somehow Simeon sensed that though on the surface little had changed – the autocrat Herod still ruled, Roman troops were still stringing up patriots, Jerusalem still overflowed with beggars—underneath everything had changed. A new force had arrived to undermine the world’s powers.” –Philip Yancey
