On the Road to Rejoicing
This is the first Sunday after Christmas, and we are continuing on our spiritual road. Today we are on the road to rejoicing. Two old people, Anna and Simeon, both saw salvation in a baby because they immersed themselves in the biblical story and interpreted the story correctly.

Just a heads up that as you watch the video you will notice that several parts include the audio and only a photo of 4 Advent candles. For some unknown reason the video files were corrupted.
On behalf of the folks at First Mennonite Church, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas!
On the Road to Revelation
This Sunday we are on the road with Mary. We are on the road to revelation. Revelation means to uncover something that was previously hidden. God comes to young Mary with an outlandish promise of salvation for the world. Mary responds to the promise with simple trust, and, as a result, play a role in God’s plan of salvation. During this Advent season, let us also be open to the possibility that nothing is impossible with God. Let’s also respond with simple trust and be open to playing a role in God’s plan of salvation.
