Outside the Box: The Gift that Can't be Contained

This Christmas, Rethink Church invites you to unwrap the story of Jesus’ birth and experience anew Love personified. This four-week, lectionary-based series will guide you through contemplating ancient Scriptures, delving into Christmas traditions and relating to transformative experiences of Christ’s birth through out humanity. The series challenges us to go outside the box to find those forgotten, ignored or turned away from life’s inns, so we may welcome all.
