Dead Air - Why Prayers Fall Silent

We love Christmas.  We love the music, the decorations, the food, the cookies, the presents, and seeing family and friends.  It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and so we should enjoy it to the fullest.   But we recognize that Christmas has its limitations.  When your family is broken, Christmas doesn't fix it.  When you’re divorced and hurting, you’re still divorced at Christmas.  When you’re in debt, Christmas doesn't fill your bank account.  When you’re scared, nervous, depressed, or hopeless, it doesn't magically disappear at Christmas.  As a matter of fact, somehow, Christmas has a tendency to exacerbate these problems.   The very tool that was meant to bring us joy and comfort can sometimes aggravate our insecurities.  This Christmas can be different, but it’s going to take a major shift in our thinking about this particular event.   Our advent sermon series this year is entitled The Event: One Timeless Phenomenon, Four Timely Perspectives.  The Christmas event was so important that God relayed it to us through more than one writer.  Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John supernaturally relied upon each other to ensure us having the entire story.  If we only know the Christmas story from Matthew or Luke, then we’re missing part of the equation.  So for the four Sundays in December, we are going to look at the Christmas event from the perspective of the four different Gospel writers, and one of these vantage points may set you free.
