Tonight saw the return of Mickey, teaching us why the birth of Jesus was so special. We have had 3 babies born this year to church members and each of their births was so very special, but Jesus’ birth is so important because He is the rescuer and deliverer promised by God through the ages, come to save His people from their sins.

‘Rescue from sin’ can be a very abstract concept, however – difficult for us to grasp. So our children dressed up as fire fighters and nurses and doctors so that we could think about how our emergency services work so hard to rescue us when we are in danger. In this case, Mickey was in danger from a fire!

We were relieved to see Mickey rescued and safe and sound and understood more about the importance of having rescuers when we’re in danger.
