Here's the Christ Reformed Announcement:
You are invited to join us for an evening of Lessons and Carols on Thursday, December 24 at 7:00 p.m.
Lessons and Carols is a service celebrating the birth of Jesus. The fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols and hymns. We hope you and your family can join us for this wonderful evening as we remember the birth of Christ and hear of God’s faithfulness throughout all ages.

Here's my purpose for this year's Christmas Eve sermon:
I hope to ruin Christmas for every non-Christian present. This year, I'm focusing on the truth claim associated with our Lord's incarnation, seen in Luke's insistence that the birth of Jesus took place during the reign of Caesar Augustus. God came to earth in Christ to save us from our sins, not to make us feel better about ourselves. Peace on earth and good will towards men (biblically defined) requires an incarnation. This is not some sort of timeless truth.
