GGF News 12/9/2011

Maybe the most famous question from Handel’s Messiah is “Who is the King of Glory?”.  At Christmas time particularly- this questions still hangs in the air.  Clearly most of those at the very first Christmas didn’t know who He was- and I think the same could be said of us today.  Could it be that our very understanding of who Jesus is- maybe our greatest obstacle in seeing who Jesus is.  It was true 2011 years ago.  Is it true for you and me?  Join us this Sunday as the children present this in their play.
If you would like to discuss and of these thoughts further- I would love to get together with you.  Don Creasman 519-5556
