Beyond Expectations

The Uniting Church in Australia, Queensland Synod’s Christmas theme for 2019 is Beyond expectations.

Christmas is a sign of hope that goes beyond our expectations. Mary and Joseph would discover that Jesus’ life was beyond their wildest imaginings. The disciples who followed Him had their expectations blown apart.

We don’t know how the story of Jesus will unfold in this generation but our hearts, minds and lives have been touched by the wonder of the birth of Jesus Christ. God has blessed us to bless others in a way that goes beyond their expectations.
