Mike and Molly and Baby at Advent

December 13

Luke 1:32,33

Cartoon

Amid all the planning and preparation of Christmas it’s all too easy to forget what Christmas is all about . A new kind of kingdom was brought to earth at the birth of Christ. God’s kingdom had come to [humankind]. Can you think of some words that describe what this kingdom is like? Would you like to be part of that kind of a kingdom?

Tune: The First Noel

And by the light of that same star
Three wise men came from country far;
To seek for a king was their intent,
And to follow the star wherever it went.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
This star drew nigh to the northwest,
O’er Bethlehem it took its rest,
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
