Christmas Homily | Caleb Schut

In this Christmas homily, Pastor Caleb reflects on the world into which Jesus was born. Caesar Augustus was the "son of god" who brought peace into a world that worships and deifies power and authority. Jesus enters as God, not in order to win Caesar's game, but in order to turn the entire world on its head in order to save it.

In Part 2, she explored how Christians ought to think of themselves and of the church in today's socio-cultural world. It was a thoughtful and timely lecture for 2016, putting into perspective a tumultuous election season.
