About This Message Series

Christmas represents the greatest expedition ever undertaken. God is the explorer and Bethlehem is the destination. God is on a mission to rescue His creation, and the Gospel writer Luke makes it clear that God assembles a crew to play different roles on this journey. As people are called to join God’s expedition to Bethlehem, they are faced with a choice to accept or reject this invitation. Some join the expedition with joy. Others are doubtful that an expedition of this kind is even possible. By examining God’s invitation to become part of His expedition Bethlehem crew, we will become more familiar with the nature and contours of God’s call to explore. By examining different responses, we will be challenged to think through how we are responding to God’s call to join His expedition in our everyday lives. May we be challenged to make the words of Mary, the mother of Jesus, our own as we respond God’s invitation, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”
