People Like Us

Embedded in the Christmas story are people, people like you and me. Normal people, in (mostly) normal walks of life, yet experiencing a close encounter with the God of the universe. Our hope is that their stories will be another link in the chain that binds your heart to the One they all encountered.

Embedded in the Christmas story are people, people like you and me.  Normal people, in (mostly) normal walks of life, yet experiencing a close encounter with the God of the universe.  Each one has a story to tell, some are positive, some are negative; we see in their lives something to apply, something to avoid.  All of their stories are told in the context of the birth of the Son of God, and how they encountered him and how they responded to His coming.  They give us much to think about and much to learn.  Our hope is that their stories will be another link in the chain that binds your heart to the One they all encountered.
