Jesus' simple Message of God's love.

New

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
"Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the unknown!"
And he replied:
"Go out into the darkness 
and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light 
and safer than a known way."

So, I went forth,
and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night
And He led me toward the hills
and the breaking of day in the lone East.

So, heart, be still!
What need our little life,
Our human life, to know,
If God hath comprehension?
In all the dizzy strife
Of things both high and low
God hideth His intention.

The Desert 1908 by
Marie Louise Haskins (1876 - 1957)

The Christmas Story

Christmas story means so much to people today.
It meant so much to the people then.
Listen to a simple telling of the promises hundreds of years earlier that came true that night.
God at work leaves people gob-smacked!

Merry Christmas from the Alva Baptist Church Family!
