In this significant message, Pastor Mark DeYmaz explains that Christmas must matter in daily life, i.e., in the streets beyond the manger. Reflecting on Luke 2, the poetry of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and recent events in Washington, D.C., Ferguson, MO, and Staten Island, NY, Mark appeals to Christ followers, everywhere, to join him in the very difficult task of peacemaking (Matthew 5:9) in an otherwise racially charged and polarized society. Hear Mark reflect on his own personal journey to Ferguson, and share honestly about having to deal with latent racism in his own heart. This message was presented on December 7, 2014 at Mosaic’s Little Rock campus.
