Christmas Lessons
Rex Yancey
Luke 2:7, James 4:14

Many of us here this morning lived through the Bull market of the eighties. However we also witnessed the Dot Com bust along with CEO's and wealthy lawyers. We are now suffering the repercussions of a decade of greed. We have gone from a time of greed to a time of need.
C. S. Studd who was a missionary to China and Africa penned this familiar line: "Only one life will soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last."
