Welcome to the Bull Shoals United Methodist Church website. We hope you are having a great holiday season.

Remember that old movie Scrooged staring Bill Murray? At the beginning of the movie, Murray, who plays a self-centered network executive, shows a promo of Dickens' play The Christmas Carol in which he depicts drug abuse, terrorism and road rage, in a effort to scare people into watching the program.  The promo ends with the statement that the true meaning of Christmas must be understood because your life might just depend on it!

It's interesting that Murray's words at the beginning of the movie, spoken to scare people, are also an abiding spiritual truth. Our life might just depend on understanding the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus our Savior came to forgive sin and bring salvation to humanity.

At the end of the movie, the self-centered executive finally realizes the true meaning of Christmas and says, Christmas is the "one night of the year when we all act a little nicer, we all smile a little easier, we all cheer a little more.  For a couple of hours out of the whole year we are the people that we always hoped we would be.  Its a miracle!"  The movie concludes with the singing of Put A Little Love In Your Heart and the world will be a better place.

The truth is, if we can open our hearts and live out the love of God, as represented by Jesus Christ, we will all be better people and the world will truly be a better place.

So this Christmas season, put a little love in your heart, make the world a better place. Be the person  God has call you to be because Christmas is a time of recognizing the greatest of miracles: God is present in our world and God loves each and every one of us.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

Pastor Pete
