Continuing to emphasize Christmas' big picture, Senior Pastor David Ball shifts from last week's focus on the suffering that is integral to the birth of Jesus to the joy of His coming. Both are part of the human experience. But this joy transcends the happiness so often used to define it. Joy is not about feelings, but rather, relationship. And relationship with God. Only connection to the Joy-giver Himself brings true "Joy to the World."
The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:
