Surely you have heard the Irving Berlin classic sung by Bing Crosby, “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.” I’m no Bing Crosby as a singer, but I want to invite you to be dreaming of a white Christmas. This white Christmas I have in mind is one where children listen but not in order to hear sleigh bells. This white Christmas I have in mind is not a dream about how much better things used to be but a dream about a Christmas you can have regardless of the weather outside and a dream about the future that will be. You will just have to listen to find out all about the white Christmas I’m inviting you to dream about tonight.
The passages for easy reference are as follows: Isaiah 1:18, Rev 7:13ff, Matt 1:21, Rev 6:2, Rev 19:11ff.
