Focus on Sacrifice

What do you picture in your imagination when you think of Christmas?

Christmas elicits a myriad of emotions because of the vast array of experiences associated with it. For some, it brings joyful anticipation and excitement, but for others, it brings fear, confusion, and loneliness. The time of year, when we should focus on the One who brought about Christmas, can be the hardest time to see and experience the reality of God and understand what he is up to in our world. And almost nowhere is this more true than in the story of the first Christmas.

This Advent season, we are seeking to connect anew with the Christmas story of old as we focus on some of the people involved in that first Christmas.
