Hope Beyond the Headlines
From Series: "We Need a Little Christmas"
It’s been a year, hasn’t it?? As we approach the Christmas season, we’re feeling it – oh yes, we need a little Christmas, need a little laughter, need a little singing, ringing through the rafter! And on top of the normal holiday stress there’s a gut feeling that things aren’t right, and we can’t make them so. Oppressive politics, weary refugees, great loss, and deep pain – all current realities echoing the birth pangs of that first Christmas long ago. Maybe more than any other time in our collective history we truly long for the hope, courage, purpose and joy the Christ child came to bring.
