As we begin the Christmas Season in Sacramento we have lots of hopeful anticipation for our church and city to thrive, develop and grow in 2015! We love our city and desire to be a part of keeping Sacramento creative, innovative, a little weird, unconventional and local.
As big developers with big money begin to move into Sacramento to develop and cash in on this cities potential and growth, we recognize the need to keep and maintain the creative quirkiness that makes Sacramento great! Part of that means helping others value and understand the importance of unconventional, creative and innovative people, people who don’t just follow trends but help to create them.
The story of the birth of Jesus is a strange one from:
the virgin birth,
God taking on flesh,
the King of the Universe being first introduced to destitute and despised shepherds,
to this Christ Child being welcomed to his world with strange gifts, by cultural foreigners, from a distant land,
and lastly this God Baby being born in a manger meant for service animals.
A strange story indeed and an even stranger way for God to introduce himself to this world. Have you ever stopped to wonder and ask yourself why? Why is this story so strange, so unconventional and weird?
We will be exploring this unconventional story together and be looking at how this birth story of Christ is meant to help form and shape an unconventional faith and distinctive living. How this strange story is meant to form us into a distinctive community of people. A people not afraid to be different, stand out, and embrace the weird, unconventional and innovative side to life, faith and community.
