Sermon: "Christmas is the Cure," December 24, 2017

Fourth Sunday in Advent
Rev. Ryan Slifka

Now to God who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but is now disclosed, and through the prophetic writings is made known to all the Gentiles, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith— to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory for ever! Amen.
— Romans 16:25-27 (New Revised Standard Version)
