What do you want for Christmas?

The old Christmas song goes like this:  “He’s making a list, checking it twice”   That song debuted on a radio show in November of 1934.   It quickly went viral; tens of thousands of 78 rpm records were pressed and sold within days.   500,000 copies of sheet music were printed in less than a month.   83 years later it’s still on the charts.

What might you ask Santa for this year, should you meet him along the journey?   Black Friday sales data suggests we would choose a flat screen television, a new iPhone, or some other gee-whiz thing to entertain us.

The original Christmas promises were a far cry from those gadgets.   The prophet Isaiah promised that God would bring his people a Messiah who would be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

How is it that our Christmas Wishes and God’s Christmas Promises don’t match?   What does it mean to have a “Wonderful Counselor”, anyhow?

Join us this Sunday as we dive into the season of Christmas and discover why we need a Wonderful Counselor in our life, now more than ever.
