The sermon for December 18, 2011, is available in video format when you click this hyperlink.  The sermon title is Legacy  and is base on 2 Samuel 7:1-11, 16 and the Gospel lesson, from Luke 1:26-38.

Some inspiration for the sermon comes from a sermon I read titled “I Will Make You a House” preached by The Rev. Charles Hoffacker.   I also owe gratitude to Eddie Hammett, whose Facebook post is quoted in the sermon, offered a challenge for Christmas I hope I never forget.

Every day in so many ways, we are trying to create our sense of value and worth.  We engage in so many building plans to establish our Legacy.  The message of the gospel is that our building programs mean nothing.  God has establish His legacy in Christ – and we are included in that in Christ.

To see that, we have to get outside the confines of our building programs, and imerse ourselves in the human race – where God has planted his legacy in Jesus Christ.

From sets to stars to story, this triumphant adaptation adds a glow to the season. Like Tiny Tim’s benediction, it blesses us – every one. CHRISTMAS IN CONNECTICUT (1945) A magazine columnist totally devoid of the homemaking skills espoused in her column had better get some fast: her boss has invited himself and a recently returned war hero to her home for Christmas. Laughs, romance, holiday cheer: that’s the recipe Barbara Stanwyck and a stellar company follow in this perennial favorite. IT HAPPENED ON 5TH AVENUE Home for the holidays! GI families hit by the post-World War II housing crunch take over an abandoned New York City mansion. THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER In the third of their four screen pairings, Margaret Sullavan and James Stewart engage in retail romance wrapped in the ribbon of director Ernst Lubitsch’s trademark touch of wit and charm.
