The Promise of Christmas
The Christmas season is a time filled with promise. But what is the promise of Christmas? If we’re not clear about what Christmas really promises, we might just miss out on what makes it the most wonderful time of the year. Join us as we take a four-week journey this Advent back to Bethlehem and recall the promises that were made by the prophets, the angels, the wise men and shepherds, and how their fulfillment is still what makes this “the most wonderful time of the year.”
