Heaven Is Here

Christmas Message Series

In the midst of all the images of the Christmas season – trees, ornaments, gifts and twinkling lights – there are indelible images of the story of the baby born on starlit night. Those images evoke different realities of the miraculous nature of the truth that Heaven came down and dwelt among us. Jesus came to be here with us!

SUPPORT

and

Encouragement

for THIS SEASON

We shared this last year. It seems like a timeless reminder. 

This was written by Meredith Miller.

Christmas is not here to offer

a four-week escape

from the pain of the world

with a paper-thin layer of twinkle lights.


It is not here to anesthetize us

with bows and eggnog lattes.


Christmas is not offering us the chance

to escape the ache of life

through piles of presents.


Christmas is God saying,

"Yes, this pain is too much. Yes, it is too sad.

Yes, the ache is too great. Hang on.

I'll come carry it with your."

Christmas is a time to remember the birth of Jesus! It's a season many look forward to celebrating. And yet, we know that for many this time of year can be really difficult, for lost of different reasons. If that's where you find yourself this year, we've gathered a few resources to comfort and encourage you. 


We've be honored to pray for you. Go to mainstreetlife.org/prayer to share a request with us and pray for others.
