“Come Home for Christmas” – Christmas Musical
- Location: Sanctuary
A Child in a foul stable,
Where the beasts feed and foam;
Only where He was homeless
Are you and I at home;
Deep within every human heart on this planet, there is a yearning; an emptiness, a homesickness. Truth be told….we are “homesick in our homes” until we come to the manger and “see the One who placed within our hearts the yearning”.* So, allow yourself to be beckoned by the beautiful music of the choir and orchestra. Be challenged by the story and writing of G. K. Chesterton as presented by our Drama Ministry. Come with us this season… “ To the end of the way of the wandering star, to the things that cannot be and that are, to the place where God was homeless and all men are at home.” ** Come home for Christmas.
*from The Yearning, lyrics by Susan Bentall Boersma
** from “The House of Christmas” by G. K. Chesterton
