The Child Shows Up

In this year’s Christmas Eve service, we are reminded that Jesus entered into our world in what was seemingly the most inopportune time, in a dirty, smelly manger, and how he continues to enter our lives at all times, good and bad.

  • Luke 1:38

    Then Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.”

    But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.

    Who wrote the ‘A Beautiful Mess’ poem? I liked it and would like the text for it, in case I use it sometime @ church, and would want to give credit where credit is due.

      Hey Bruce,
      We’re glad you liked the Christmas story.
      I am on the communications team here at Woodland and I had the privilege of writing it.
      I’d be glad to share the text with you via email.

"We just started attending last summer and we love it! This past weekend the music was so beautiful, I felt the Holy Spirit there and wept the entire time. And then the message on relationships spoke right to my own struggles. God is here."
