Spoken word piece by Odd Thomas written for Trinity Church of Portland.
“What good is the Christmas story, if it’s void of God and His glory. What’s the worth of the words ‘peace on earth’ if it’s not rooted in the truth of Christ’s birth. What benefit is it for us to discuss the joy of the season unless we fix our hearts and our minds on the principle reason Christ is atoned for us. See Christmas is more than a story of a baby born in a manger, more than a poor fiance engaged to a humble virgin teenager…It’s the coming of the Messiah, the fulfillment of all Old Testament promises.”
