Christmas makes us happy, doesn’t it? We’re happy to be with family. Happy to indulge in all the sweet Christmas treats. Happy to give gifts and, if we’re honest, happy when we receive a gift we didn’t expect.
But, there’s a difference between happiness and joy. Happiness is temporary, but JOY lasts forever. That’s why, on that first Christmas, the angel said to the shepherds: I come to bring good news of great JOY! Join us for worship!
