Away in a Manger

Here’s an oldie but goodie, originally published two years ago.

Jesus said:Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”Matthew 11:28

This made me tear up.
It’s Christmas. A Nativity scene is set up in a church yard.
During the night, the folks came across this sight. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus.
No one had the heart to send him away, so he stayed in the manger all night.

A Glorious Christmas Flashmob

Let the PC Grinch try stopping believers from proclaiming His birth and His name!
I started tearing up when the flash mob began singing “O Holy Night,” then really lost it at the 4:25 mark….
This Christmas flash mob took place at the South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach, CA, on December 18, 2010. The singers are members of the Journey of Faith.
Journey of Faith began in 1911 as a traveling school bus, offering Sunday school classes to the children in the Hermosa Beach area – where open fields and goats grazing were the norm. By 1957, the congregation had become so big that a 4-mile property in Manhattan Beach was purchased, which became the first Journey of Faith church.
Since then, two additional worship centers were built, as well as an E-Building in 1999 to house a preschool program for Journey School and adult Bible classes and events. In 2009, a new 18,000 square foot educational building – The Harbor – was added; as well as Journey’s first satellite site in Bellflower.
Today, Journey of Faith numbers 2,000 worshipers “serving the body of Christ for his Kingdom.”
This is Journey’s Mission Statement:

As a community of worshipers we have been sent into the world to Make Mature and Mobilize Disciples who love the Lord our God above all else and who touch others with the reality of Jesus Christ.

God bless the good people of Journey of Faith!

Jesus Has Two Mommies?!

“…when the angels had gone from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us go to Bethlehem and see this event which the Lord has made known to us.’ So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger.” (Luke 2:15-16)

The gay PC brigade has invaded, not just America’s pop culture and public school curriculum, it is now in our churches.
Joe Kovacs reports for WorldNetDaily, Aug 4, 2011, that last December, St. Timothy’s United Methodist Church in Cedar Falls, Iowa, displayed a living Nativity scene featuring two women starring as Joseph and Mary, instead of a man and a woman!

The church’s pastor Rev. Linda Butler told WND, “The parents just happened to be two women. They were playing the role of the Holy Family, not necessarily Mary and Joseph. We never referred to the moms as Mary and Joseph. We referred to them as the Holy Family. What we emphasized was that this was two parents, and this is our baby and this our story. They’re two moms, but it doesn’t stand out.”
Butler noted that Jesus had a human mother but Joseph was not the Savior’s actual father, so her church’s living Nativity “does fit so well biblically. If He was born of a virgin, then Joseph is not the father. He’s not part of the conception.”
St. Timothy’s says its 400-member congregation welcomes all sexual orientations and gender identities.
Dan Skogan, a Lutheran from Marion, Iowa, who has a website looking to expose problems in his own church said, “Having a lesbian couple represent Mary and Joseph is a slap in the face to the Holy Family and Christians around the world. It is a very sad day when Christian denominations encourage GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) individuals, people whom God dearly loves, to live in and embrace a lifestyle that God calls them to leave. Personally, I am not surprised by this because many mainline denominations in the United States are continually undermining the truth and authority of the Bible with their own agenda.”
