The power of the Gospel which began in Bethlehem

By Kristen Johnson

From this morning’s liturgy:

Christmas Creed

I believe in Jesus Christ and in the power of the Gospel which began in Bethlehem.

I believe in the One whose spirit glorified a small village, of whose coming the shepherds saw the sign, and for whom there was no room in the inn.

I believe in the One whose life changed the course of history, for whom the kings of the earth had no power, and who was not understood by the proud.

I believe in the One to whom the poor, the oppressed, the sick, and the blind welcome and accept as Savior.

I believe in the One who, with love, changed the hearts of the proud, and with his life showed that the greatest joy is in giving your life for others.

I believe in peace, reconciliation, forgiveness and the transforming power of the gospel.

I believe that Christmas is strength and power, and that this world can change if, with humility and faith, we kneel before the manger.

I believe that I must be the first one to do so. Amen.

Serve all with love.
