If you would turn with me in your Bibles to 2 Kings chapter 11; it’s found on page 317 in your pew Bibles. One of the songs we’ve sung over the last few days and weeks, “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” you know the first line, “O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie.” That couldn’t be true, could it? We know what...

Advent Songs

The passage this morning is, you might say, somewhat like a mountain. It begins, the ascent, the climb begins in verse 8. Here’s the level ground at the foot of the mountain.

Advent Songs

We continue our Advent series looking at the four songs with which the opening chapters of the book of Luke begin. There is, as we said last time, a real sense in which these four songs could be called the very first Christmas carols, songs of praise, the first songs of praise in response to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please turn with me in your Bibles to the gospel of Luke, in chapter 15. You’ll find it on page 875 if you’re using a pew Bible. Just a quick note. Our senior minister, David Strain, is on vacation with his family this week so please be in prayer for them that they would be refreshed and that the Lord would bring them back safely. Before I pray...
