The Christmas story prompts us to a profound sense of awe and wonder. It is a love story conceived in the heart of a great and mighty God before the creation of time. The gospel of Luke records that after the shepherds had seen the newborn Messiah, they spread the word about what they had experienced. All who heard it were amazed! Even first-century witnesses stood in awe of this wondrous event . . . and the story continues to stir the hearts and minds of people who hear it afresh each year. Veteran composer/arranger, Tom Fettke, takes us again to Bethlehem to experience the fulfillment of God's plan in a humble manger. Beloved and familiar carols along with new texts and melodies are masterfully blended to create a Christmas worship experience as again we are invited to celebrate the great and mighty wonder of God's love! (Although conceived without a spoken narrative, one is provided as a performance option.).
