12.04.16 Christmas is Not Your Birthday - Giving Up on Perfect

There’s a lot of pressure in our culture to have a perfect Christmas—  to get together with all the right people and purchase all the right gifts. But Christmas doesn’t have to be perfect. If you look at the original Christmas story with Mary and Joseph, you can see how it never really has been perfect. But Christmas can be good if we handle it differently than our culture does. In this message we’ll dig into the first Christmas story and learn some lessons about how we can celebrate differently in this Advent season.
