Come Celebrate Christmas at Roxborough Presbyterian
The above painting  (click here or on the image for a more detailed version) "Nativity" by artist Brian Kershisnik, shares the beauty of the birth of Christ. The expression on Joseph’s face! Maybe he’s exhausted…maybe he just doesn't quite know what to do next…or maybe he is so overwhelmed by the realization of what the birth of his baby boy might mean for the future of the world. The movement of the angels in this image is both toward the baby boy, but then outward and beyond into the world. The angels do worship, but they continue moving on – moving on to share the Good News of the birth, the Good News that has now come to the world. The coming of the Messiah.
As followers in the way of Jesus during the Season of Advent, we wait…we wait in expectant hope. Then, we worship the newborn child - and what he means for our world. And finally as the angels did that amazing night - we need to go out and proclaim!
Come join Roxborough Presbyterian Church as we celebrate and share the birth of Christ this season.

Both the season of Advent and the season of Lent are about hope. It is not just hope for a better day or hope for the lessening of pain and suffering, although that is certainly a significant part of it. It is more about hope that human existence has meaning and possibility beyond our present experiences, a hope that the limits of our lives are not nearly as narrow as we experience them to be. It is not that we have possibility in ourselves, but that God is a God of new things and so all things are possible
