North Country Notes – December 30, 2011

Are you ready for a new year? I’m excited for a new year and I hope you are too.

Here’s what we get with a new calendar. An opportunity to commit ourselves afresh to praying for the work that God is doing in our midst at Higgins Lake Baptist Church. I’m greatly encouraged that almost 12 hours of daily prayer have been committed to for our 8 Days of Prayer. Will you join us too? If you haven’t already, go to the web form here and share with me your commitment to pray daily from January 1st through the 8th. [Read more…]

Christmas joy. I asked you last week to think carefully about whether you’d be able to find reason for joy at Christmas, even if we had none of the Christmas celebrating, like all the decorating, gift giving, and gatherings we’ve grown so accustomed to. And we noted that there are, wonderful reasons for joy. We saw them in the first few verses of Luke 2 last week. I want you to go there with me again this morning. We’re going to look at a few more verses here in Luke 2 and we’ll see there are even more reasons for joy than we saw last time. [Read more…]

The other night our family was watching a Christmas movie together called The Man Who Saved Christmas. It was about a toy maker who’d been enlisted by the government in the war effort to make things the soldiers needed on the battle field. 

In an effort to get the public to buy war bonds instead of toys, the government also convinced the toy maker to support their idea of canceling Christmas until the war was over.  [Read more…]

Kevin’s North Country Notes – December 16, 2011

Christmas, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, right? It also seems like the busiest. During this busy Christmas season I hope you’ll pause daily to praise and worship the risen Savior, “he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords” (1 Tim. 6:15), Jesus Christ, during this season when we celebrate His birth.

This Sunday morning we begin a two week series I’m calling “Christmas Joy”. We’ll be in Luke 2:1-20, so read ahead and see if calls to mind reasons for joy at our Saviors birth. [Read more…]
