This year we could all use an extra dose of Christmas cheer! As 2020 comes to a merciful close, we could all use an extra dose of cheer. However, we don’t need the kind of unrealistic hope that promises we can forget the past 9 months or that the flip of the calendar will automatically heal all of our wounds. We need the kind of joy that grounds us in a grace-filled past and a glorious future. We need to be reminded of what God has done for us in becoming flesh. We need to remind ourselves that we are being pursued and loved by the King. Maybe more than any other recent year, we need Christmas! And as we experience the true Christmas, we anticipate God filling us with his comfort and joy. (Series dates, December 6-27)
