He is Named

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light… (Isaiah 9:2a)

Have you seen a great light? We all might agree that we see the darkness. (Can you “see” darkness? If so, don’t you need light to see it? Just wondering…but I digress, sorry.) But do we see a great light?

Perhaps, if we look for it. 

  • We can see families adopted for Christmas and gifts purchased. Gifts that are not “wants” but much of them “needs”. (boots, jackets, jeans) 
  • We can see parties thrown for people who make their living on a trash dump in Nicaragua. 
  • We can see kids tutored, loved and learning about Jesus at Whiz Kids. 
  • We can see community formed among women who are clients at The Gathering Place with playing Bingo monthly. 
  • We can see kids and families celebrating Christmas at the Open Door Christmas party. 
  • We can see hands and feet and bodies warmed by winter outerwear given to students at Paris Elementary.

There’s light when we look. Because as Isaiah continues:

For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

This child we celebrate at Christmas invites us into the light. These names of Jesus invite us into the light. May we reflect and spend some time with these names. What do those names mean to us?

Here’s a short music video to help us reflect on this child that has been given to us. 


We’ll be looking for you tomorrow as we gather to praise God, thank God and reflect on Isaiah 9:1-7. And, (spoiler alert) the band will be with us. If you can’t make it at 9:00 or 10:30, you can watch on demand at http://ggcc.publishpath.com/live-stream.

Grace be with you,
