Sunday's Message
December 8, 2019


In 1861 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s wife was burned to death.  Then the Civil War began and his son fought without his approval.  He was wounded in battle.  During that horrible war Longfellow heard the church bells on Christmas and wrote:

I heard the bells on Christmas day

Their old familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet the words repeat

Of peace on earth, good will to men.


I thought how, as the day had come

The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along th’ unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good will to men.


And in despair I bowed my head:

“There is no peace on earth,” I said,

“For hate is strong and mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good will to men.”


Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

“God is not dead nor doth He sleep;

The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,

With peace on earth, good will to men.”


Till, ringing, singing on its way,

The world revolved from night to day;

A voice, a chime, a chant sublime

Of peace on earth, good will to men.


Thus Longfellow moved from despair to peace.  Sunday I’m preaching on “Find Peace” from Luke 1:67-79 wherein Zacharias, after his son’s circumcision, sings a song which prophesies how the boy, John the Baptist, will pave the way for the Peacemaker, Jesus.  We’ll find peace in Jesus (verses 67-75), and prepare the path for peace (verses 76-79).  In a day when alcoholism, drug addiction and suicide is lowering American life expectancy, people need peace.  You can find it and you can give it away.  Come Sunday and learn how.

This Saturday is our Men’s Breakfast.  Then from 9:00 till noon is set-up for our Live Nativity.  Then at 2:00 is the memorial service for Theresa Wright’s mother.  Come if you can.

It’s not too late to sign up to help with the Nativity.  Just call me at 925-784-0402.  It will be advertised through TV, radio, social media, banners, and most importantly, word of mouth. Pray that God will use this event to promote peace in our community!
