It's not about a baby. It's about a King.

 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
         and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”  Lk 2:14

The Nativity story isn't so much about a baby's birthday as it is the covert beginnings of a King moving his pieces into place to begin to take back his territory. With the birth of Jesus, the manger became the first piece of land where the Kingdom of God was established. The good news is that the Kingdom is still expanding today.

The soldiers of this great war aren't the king's guard or great warriors but the smelly, disheveled shepherds and anyone else who is willing to hear the good news and go worship the King.

The tools used to fight this war aren't weapons of death, but a message of peace.

This year join the work of the Kingdom. Lay down your weapons of war so you can the King in sharing this message of Peace.
