Christmas comes loaded with expectation for most of us, and as such there is lots of pressure around Christmas.  Pressure to buy the right gifts; pressure to attend all the festivities that jam up the calendar, pressure to have a memorable family experience.  The problem is that our reality often falls short of our expectations, with Christmas actually highlighting the dissatisfaction we have in our lives: our families aren’t as happy and whole as we would like; we don’t have the money to buy the “perfect” gift, we aren’t feeling the joy of the holidays.  This morning I want to look at a rock solid promise of Christmas that is big enough to fill your heart with peace forever.

Merry Christmas,

Pastor Shawn
