The King of Hope
Unwrap the real Christmas. The malls are packed, the tree is up, and the Christmas cider is sumptuous. The manger scene is erected, the cards are sent, and everyone is guessing what is in the big blue box under the tree. The holiday buzz is at full pitch. Many people look forward to the big day with its traditions and family celebrations. But some find Christmastime over-commercialized--even a time of anxiety or sadness. Christmas is a season that should provoke hope in us, but often it stirs up despair and loneliness. No matter your reality, the real Christmas is more than a time of gift giving and family gatherings, and it's more even than a story about a baby in a manger. It is the story of a King--the King of hope. Pastor Dan Carroll unpacks the real Christmas, showing you a King who came to fill you with possibility, destiny and hope.
