    Songs of Christmas – The Angels’ Song
    Music is everywhere at Christmas, from complete chart-toppers, carols, children's tunes, and more ... music is always around us, but seemingly never more than at Christmas time. This month, we’ll look at the songs of a teenage girl, a respected priest, a group of angels, and an old man who will bring us to the very heart of Christmas, showing us the joy and peace that comes from meeting a baby who lay in a simple food trough and changed eternity.

    "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!"  These words capture the entire song that a group of majestic, celestial beings cried out 2000 years ago, announcing the most reality shaping event in all of recorded history. Today we dig into the impact these words still have on our world so many years later.

    Our second song in our Christmas series takes us to the question:  Am I a child of God or a servant of God?  Find out how we should be both - without neglecting either - in our discussion today!

    Louder Than Words – Week 8 (James 5.13-20)
    The letter of James (in the New Testament) shows one of the church's early pastors going about his work of confronting, diagnosing, and dealing with areas of misbelief & misbehavior that had turned up in congregations committed to his care. DEEP & LIVING WISDOM is the topic. Now WISDOM is not primarily knowing the truth, although it certainly includes that. It is also the skill of living out that truth. What good is TRUTH if we don't know how to live it out? And what good is INTENTION if we can't sustain it? Join Grace Family for this series of conversations... seeking God's WISDOM so our lives will become Louder Than Words.

    We all know that pain and suffering are a part of life ... it's an inescapable reality.  So many of our prayers (whether or not we would call ourselves religious) are centered on asking for some sort of healing - recovery from a disease, an injury, or a tragic accident.  And God DOES want us to pray about those things, but we discover today that the healing that God wants us to pursue is something much deeper, much more abiding that we could really imagine.

    We discovered over the last 6 weeks in our Louder Than Words series (looking at an ancient letter written by Jesus' brother James) that what we DO speaks much louder than what we SAY ... but we've also learned that what we DO is determined by what we really BELIEVE.  Pastor Tim challenges us to wrestle with the notion that the coming return of Jesus at the end of all things should having an impact on how I live today.

    We live in a world where we can say what we want to whoever we want whenever we want.  We are bombarded with the words of others (whether spoken or written) almost constantly - yet it seems that our words do much more to divide and wound each other than to bring us together.  We discuss the importance of what we do with our words and how wisdom must inform our speech as we continue in our Louder Than Words series this morning.

    Belief & faith is central to the tenets of the Christian faith - and to the human condition as a whole!  However, beliefs are never really separated from our actions because what we do displays what we truly believe about anything.  We dig into that reality this morning as we continue the discussion in our Louder Than Words series.

    One of the clearest teachings in the Bible is God's desire for humanity to be united and free from prejudice ... in fact, the Good News about Jesus is deeply concerned with the idea that He paid the price so that we could individually and corporately be restored to God and (through that) restored to one another.  Today we discuss this idea and how it should impact our lives.
