Illuminate: Light

John 1:1-14

Illuminate: Peace

Luke 1:26-28, 46-55

We chase after peace in so many forms.  This pursuit can be exhausting.  But God comes to the unlikely, like a young girl named Mary, with a great and frightening invitation.  Join him and give up your current life, and you will find… amazingly, perfect peace.

Illuminate: Joy

John 1:6-8, 19-28

Christmas is the season of joy! But so often it, like our lives, are desperate grabs for a joy that eludes us or slips through our fingers.  John the Baptist gives a clear example and teaching that life’s Joy truly comes as we find our calling and purpose from God in Jesus.

Illuminate: Love

Mark 1:1-8

We deeply need to be loved and to love.  Mark starts his gospel not with a birth, but a message: “God loves you! Repent and love him back!”  This is how we get ready for Jesus.  This is where we find the love of God through forgiveness we so deeply need. And here is where we find a baptism of the Holy Spirit not just to free us from past guilt, but to transform our flaky hearts to be a person who loves!
