Thomas Are, Jr. - Celebrating Christmas with Mark

Tuesday November 20, 2018
As he begins a special Day1 series for Advent, the Rev. Tom Are reminds us that Christmas can be hard--it’s supposed to be wonderful, joyful, filled with love, but sometimes it just magnifies our hunger, grief, and fear … and that’s when we need to spend Christmas with Mark, because he knows the son of God will meet us in the broken places.

Thomas Are, Jr. - Christmas at Luke's House

The Rev. Thomas Are, Jr., invites us to spend Christmas at Luke’s house this week, and it’s a simple place off the beaten track far outside of town.
