It is that time of year… or almost. It seems like it happens earlier each year, but as November arrives we begin to see decorations, lights, the stores, Hallmark Channel, even the music on the radio turns toward Christmas. There is something about our culture that has a need for Christmas. Now, to be honest… many people miss the meaning or don’t know why they are celebrating. But for those who know Jesus, there is no mystery at all, we realize that Christmas comes and gives us a realistic way to look at life.
It does not say – “if we just cheer up we can make the world a better place.” It doesn not suggest that “we can fix things if we try hard enough.” Instead Christmas gives us a poerful reminder that “there is hope.” And that is very good news.
So this series admits, “I need a little Christmas now…” Get ready for the holiday rotation of Mid-Week.
