This year, for Christmas, we are taking a step back from the debate. We’ve posted on this a couple of times, but I wanted to emphasize now for the Christmas season: we at SEA believe that Calvinists are our Christian brothers, and we have every expectation of worshiping our common Lord and King, Jesus Christ with them for all of eternity.
Christmas is unique in that it is the day of the year that we celebrate who Christ is: fully human and fully God. It is the celebration of the incarnation of God on the earth, when God came down here with us and got His hands dirty with our mess.
This is belief that we hold in common with Calvinism. So let us stand together this Christmas and celebrate Emmanuel: God with us. For He is with us, and calls us to be one people.
