Season’s Greetings–Christmas Letters From Those Who Were There

During the holiday season, starting Sunday, Nov. 26, the Sunday sermons will be in the form of letters written from and delivered by biblical characters on the subject, “What Christmas Means to Me.” Well researched and creatively rendered, the letters are excerpted from Pastor Boling’s forthcoming Advent/Christmas publication, Season’s Greetings: Christmas Letters from Those Who Were There, to be published by Upper Room Books in 2024. The letters will be dramatically presented during worship by different readers including church volunteers and theater professionals:
