Homily for Christmas Midnight
At the Christmas Midnight Divine Service (11:00 p.m. at Hope), we get to hear the great account of our Savior's Birth as given in Luke 2:1-20. What a great mystery it is that the Son of God humbled Himself, took on our human flesh and blood to become true Man, and yet still remains completely true God. On this Christmas Midnight we found ourselves "Pondering the Mystery" as we connected our Lord's Birth with His comforting promises from both the Old Testament and the New.
