December is a chaotic month­—in both our American culture and in the Church. On the church side of things, this month’s readings focus on heavy thoughts ... judgment, darkness, and the End of Days are all bursting into our worship services. But, ultimately, it is the birth of Jesus that commands our central attention. Jesus comes, His earthly life begins, in order to rescue us from judgment. In His coming, the judgment of God we have accrued by our sin and disobedience meets its decisive end. Rev. Jacob Schultz launches us in this run-up to Christmas with this weekend’s message, “The Road Back Home.”
