"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"
There are two great traditions after Thanksgiving:
- Back Friday and shopping for Christmas
- Watching "Its a Wonderful Life"
We have already started the first, now its time to savor the second.
Tomorrow I start a new sermon series, "The Gospel According to George Bailey". For the next four weeks we'll be exploring how the message of Christ is embedded in this film. More than just a sentimental journey, its a chance to rediscover the heart of Christmas and the key to a life that is truly wonder-filled.
Two traditions: One is supposed to be good for the economy. The other is definitely good for the soul. Come tend your soul as we begin with, "Searching for a Wonderful Life".
