Sermon preached on 12/25/14 by Rev. Eric Kirkegaard from the text: Luke 2:1-20
Each year at Christmas the sermon is preached as a character from our Christmas story as a gift to Peace Church. The characters are usually a bit “unusual”: a star, a donkey, the pregnant innkeepers wife, a Christmas Tree, or even St. Nicholas…. We have fun celebrating the joy of the season – laughing and rejoicing – even as we engage how the gospel continues to demand to break into our world and be born in our lives anew.
This year the sermon was preached as a cow (a special thank you to my daughter for once again standing behind her father – this time as the back half of that same cow!)
