Pastor Jeff Purganan
- Speaks to a government of peace? Hard to imagine a land where the law of love is what presides.
- Strange tradition, celebrating a baby, rather than celebrating Jesus! We don’t do that with ourselves. We do it to image the government being on baby Christ’s shoulders.
- This takes quite a bit of imagination of what a government of peace could be if based on love: people providing for the poor – giving and feeding. We are a people giving joy, comfort. Giving peace. Giving gifts.
- Baby Christ is God’s placement of light in the darkness. It’s celebrating and imaging what it should be, what we should be proclaiming: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
