Today's sermon was presented by Gary McDowell
He called the little folk in the church to the front to show them what he had been given as gifts for Christmas.
He explained how the DVD of the Incredible's that he had received was about a group of characters, each one with their own unique powers and abilities, each one different and unique like all of us, all different and each with our own unique identities.
He went on to add that we had all received the most fantastic gift ever. One that would always be there and always keep its values in our lives. That gift was of course God's son Jesus and there was nothing we received that would be as INCREDIBLE and enduring as long as we remembered to keep him as part of our daily lives.
Gary then showed his fold out back scratcher pen and when he showed what it was, he said that it would be with him in his pocket whenever he needed it, like Jesus...always there when we need him.
Gary then showed a box of gold covered chocolates. These, he told us, were like the gifts that were brought to baby Jesus by the Three Wise Men.
Gary then invited a member of the congregation to do the reading. Matthew 2: v 1-12
He then carried on with the story of the Wise Men who traveled over 800 km from foreign lands to see the baby Jesus, even going via King Herod without fear to discover where the New King of the Jews was to be born.
Gary also raised some interesting and thought provoking ideas that he asked the congregation to think about in order to become more thoughtful and dedicated to our task of becoming everyday followers.
