Shawnee Presbyterian Church




Happy New Year!

With this greeting to one another as 2017 starts off I hope we also realize what this Baby Jesus and Lord and Savior brings to us in the same frame of thought. Take out your Bible or open your browser to Romans 6:1-11 and read what Paul teaches us about Jesus and our newness of life through Him.

I find it interesting that as our church and homes breathe a sigh of relief as Advent and Christmas is complete and the decorations can come down and be stored for another year, we so easily forget to consider what happens next to the characters in our story. We know that Joseph and Mary take Jesus to Egypt for his safety, but what about the shepherds and wise men? Do they simply return to the former lives unchanged by what they have seen and heard? That’s impossible we may say as they witnessed in person the greatest gift coming into the world. Still, I challenge each of us to consider our response to this same gift of the Christ Child and how we continue our lives following Christmas time.

Let us continue to celebrate and bow before this Jesus the Christ who has come into our world and now reigns in power and might with God the Father Almighty. This God who is more than any of us could ever imagine came to us to show us how to live and who to live for. In this newness of life, let each of us begin 2017 trusting in the Grace and Mercy which comes through the child whose manger bed we so eagerly put away for next time.
