Sermon Introduction
Today is a very special service here at Loma Linda University Church. I want to begin,
then, by saying thank you. Thank you to Thad Mosely (and any helpers) who is (are)
responsible for the beautiful seasonal decorations in our sanctuary. Thank you to
Ariel Quintana and all of our LLUC musicians for the beautiful music all throughout
this season, but today in particular. Thank you to Stew Harty and his media team
for countless hours of work in bringing the services of LLUC to so many in both our
community and beyond who are unable to join us in person. Thank you so much to
our entire administrative support staff. They are the ones who keep LLUC running!
Thank you to Ruben Yañez and our maintenance crew for their continual, quiet but
absolutely vital behind-the-scenes work to keep our sanctuary and grounds beautiful
and clean. Last, but certainly not least, I say a heartfelt thank you to my colleagues
on the LLUC pastoral team who make coming to work and doing ministry together a
joy! I love you each one!
Today’s service will be a rich one, indeed—rich with the music of Handel’s Messiah. I
hope that as the music washes over your soul, Jesus will minister to you in personal and
real ways so that, when you leave this place today, you will leave with the assurance
of his presence and love.
I wish you a very merry Christmas!
Randy Roberts
Senior Pastor
