True Meaning of Christmas Blog #3
It looks like Pastor Moses can’t be SAVED from unwanted input on this true meaning of Christmas blog post! After departing from his so called secret office, he stopped by his favorite restaurant’s drive thru for brunch only to be given a mouthful at the drive thru window by Mrs. Jackie. He received a lecture from Mr. And Mrs. Sue on the topic while at Manna’s Ville Dry Cleaners picking up his robe. And finally; returning back to the church office he received a call from Pastor Simon putting his input on the subject! Poor Pastor Moses, I guess there’s no place for him to hide in the Town of Manna’s Ville. Perhaps next time, he’ll disguise himself as someone else to keep people from recognizing him. We’ll have to see . . . .
Mr. & Mrs. Sue believe that Jesus SAVED us from permanent brokenness.
Mrs. Jackie believes that Jesus SAVED us by dying on the cross and forgiving our sins.
Pastor Simon believes Jesus Christ SAVED us from not having true peace, love, joy and happiness.
Hopefully ALL of these Salvation tips helped you today in your daily walk!

Pastor Moses will agree that Howard the Sheep and Mrs. Wyde gave some great tips on the true meaning of Christmas. However; he’s not taking the chance in any further interruptions whethertheir tips are helpful or not! After packing his bag, he left the office and turned off the light. He was careful not to make his exit through the front door, so he departed out the far back door near the dumpster. Confident that there would be no unwanted company by the trash can, he was surprisingly greeted by Manna’s Ville homeless friends Alberto and Augustus eating breakfast beside the dumpster. Poor Moses, can anybody SAVE him from this madness! They had this to say on the topic . . . . .
Alberto and Augustus believe that Jesus SAVED us from never reaching our full potential!
Moses believes that Jesus SAVED us from not knowing our true identity in God.

The sweet minty chocolate aroma was enough to encourage anyone to enter the bakery. But to Pastor Simon the sweet scent came second to its delicious taste. Delighted to discover that his favorite cupcake was the flavor of the day, he hurried to grab his wallet and requested two to-go. While digging for change in his pocket, the cashier placed the containers on the counter with a “paid” sticker on each, and stated “It’s on the house”. Pastor Simon was truly taken off guard by this, he had never been the “Customer of The Day”! He gladly thanked the cashier and took his cupcakes. But before he left, he Blessed the customer behind him and gave her one of his deliciously sweet treats!
