“Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded.
For I am doing a work in your days, that you would not believe if told.”
  (Habakkuk 1:5 – ESV)

In a world where so much goes so wrong so fast, where justice seems elusive – what does the Christmas season have to offer in 2021? God invites our questions, cries and protests, and as He does throughout Biblical history, answers with the bigger picture of what He is about in His creation.

Let’s WONDER together this Christmas season, and be astonished at the work of God in our midst. GraceCity, a revival of wonder in God’s work is not an all or nothing proposition. This Christmas season we’ll make incremental discoveries along the continuum of divine wonder that will no doubt be a change-maker in all of our lives. And you’re invited along with your family and friends.

Aristotle said, “Wonder is the first of all passions.” Psychologists tell us that “wonder” (a sense of awe tinged with mystery), remains a prized and all too rare emotion linked to our ability to step outside of ourselves to see a story that is bigger than ‘me’.

Can there be any experience bigger and more full of wonder than to encounter the God of the Universe in the person of his Son Jesus Christ?
