It was the Best of Times, It was the Worst of Times

It was the Best of Times, It was the Worst of Times

Jerry Leachman of Leachman Ministries joins us again today to share a special message about Christmas. His focus is on the shepherds, the first people the angels told about Jesus’ birth. They were the first to see the baby Jesus. They knelt and worshipped him.

They were the first to worship and on the way back to their sheep, they witnessed to everybody. They were the first missionaries. They told everybody, the Messiah has come. We saw Him and we praised Him. These humble shepherds. Don’t we all need a bigger dose of humility? And our pride, and our sense of entitlement today?

Jerry is a favorite speaker at The Center’s events. Along with being an associate Chaplain in The NFL for many years, Jerry has done ministry in Guatemala, Scotland, Russia, Europe and Africa as well as all over the U.S.

He and his wife Holly have been on Young Life Staff and continue to be involved with Young Life here and also internationally.
