A Child is Born!
For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
This verse from the prophet Isaiah has inspired Christians for millennia and shaped our celebration of Christmas thanks to George Frideric Handel’s Messiah.
Join Pastor Mark Dixon, Pastor Charlie Ruud, and Mount Olivet Conference & Retreat Center Director, Rev. Theresa Latini, in studying the many meanings of this beautiful text. Together we will begin our Advent journey by exploring questions like these: What child is this (Hezekiah or Jesus or both)? What does it matter that God came to us as a child? How does this child lead God’s people, including us, out of darkness and into the light?
