Sometimes it feels difficult to celebrate Christmas. The difficulties and even tragedies in our own lives may settle over us with gloom. The national and world events may seem to grow in darkness. A week ago, we attended the funeral mass of a friend who died way too soon and at this time, of all times. Can we overcome the world and still find ourselves singing, "Joy to the World?" I believe we can.
Using the Nativity account from Luke's gospel, this podcast focuses on God's awareness and blessing of the "cast of characters" in the Christmas story. At the end of this podcast is the account of a pastor from Australia who was taken to heaven. Prior to God's sudden blessing of him, he felt defeated and forgotten. But now, all is different. This can also be your life. God wants to bless you and I pray your fresh encounter with Him will come this Christmas.
