07 - Candy Stick Of Christmas

Selected Scriptures

December 2, 2018 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

Legend has it that what started off as a makeshift pacifier for unruly children overcome with boredom with medieval Christmas sermons soon became a worldwide phenomenon that teaches through symbolism the meaning of Christmas. The birth of Jesus Christ--the Good Shepherd--announced first to lowly shepherds of Bethlehem who were keeping their flocks by night, is the meaning behind the Candy Cane of Christmas. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

01 - Promise Of The Christ Child

November 25, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

Christmas is not about children fables. It’s not meant to tell the story of jolly Old St. Nick who lavishes children with gifts, depending upon whether they are naughty or nice. Rather, Christmas tells the story of the Christ-Child -- the God Man -- first promised in Genesis 3 and made Manifest in Matthew 1. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

02 - Proclamation Of The Christ Child

December 2, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

The first proclamation of the Christ-child of Christmas happened in the unlikeliest of places and to the unlikeliest of parents. Moreover, it revealed the unlikeliest of pregnancies. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

03 - Proof Of The Christ Child

December 9, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

Of all the herculean announcements that God has made to mankind throughout history, as recorded in His Word, His announcement to Mary about the birth of the Christ-child of Christmas is one of only a few in the Bible where God offered a miraculous sign to substantiate His promise. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.
