Preached by Richard Humphrey on Tuesday, December 24th, 2019
A part of the Can you Believe It Advent Christmas 2019 series.
But in the business of the season and in the quietness of this night do need to stop and ask “Can you believe it?” Can we really believe the story of Christmas? Tales of a virgin birth, wandering stars and nocturnal angelic choirs can seem like a fairy tale, the history seems a bit dodgy and wasn’t December 25th originally a pagan festival. It seems to fall short of the truth and so a tall order to believe. It seems unreal in a world where our problems can seem all too real.
Well perhaps surprisingly this Christmas I want you to believe less, but to believe in one thing that is far bigger, as we ask Can you believe it? Do you believe it?
