The Gift of Christmas: Jesus our King
Colossians 1:9-17/ Pastor Shay

It's Advent, and at Advent, for centuries, the church has always taken a few weeks before Christmas to look right at who Jesus is, straight at Jesus.  We are looking for these weeks before Christmas at COlossians 1.  No place gives us a loftier and more penetrating view of who Jesus is.  Today we look at the issue of chaos and the cosmos and the One who holds it all together.
