Our view of the manger has become so become so clean and proper. But the real truth is that first century mangers were dirty and messy. The manger puts Jesus at the center of a mess, not a masterpiece. Jesus came to the manger because humanity needed to be rescued. Not rescued from a sanitized petting zoo, but from a filthy, dirty stable. It was a mess, just like us! In this message we find that Jesus didn’t mind the mess of the manger, and He doesn’t mind our mess, either.

We live today in a world that still thinks it is foolish to worship some baby that was born in a lowly manger, to a humble carpenter, and a common woman. But in this message we will understand why wise men still seek Him.

Join us as we discover how God used a tiny town for an enormous purpose.
