This short Christmas series is different from last year’s series (Christmas Stories) for it will not include any of the birth narratives, but instead focuses on the new world the gospel brings. In a world full of so much trouble and uncertainty, there is a reminder of the world that is coming made by the birth of God’s Son Jesus. Christmas is not about phony piety or skepticism, but about a change of heart and a change of life rooted in the promises of God.
