Luke 1:5-25
Waiting on God: Zechariah

The Christmas season is upon us.  We see Christmas lights on houses, downtown and in Riel by the park. Shopping Centers are fully decked out in their Christmas gear.  Once December hits this week, we will be full on into the Christmas season.    With it comes the potential for joy, sadness, and everything in between.   Some of us will go into this Christmas with great joy looking forward to seeing people because of something that happened this past year.  Maybe there’s a new little one in our family.  Maybe we have a new job or a new relationship.  Maybe we go into our first Christmas as a married couple; or with much better health.  Maybe we had a brush with death this year which heightens our appreciation of Christmas.
