Removing Joy From Christmas

December 14, 2014

Pastor Jon continues this year's Advent sermon series, Come and Behold Him! with "Removing Joy From Christmas," from Luke 1:78-79. [powerpress] Luke 1:78-79 (ESV)

“…because of the tender mercy of our God, whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Christmas reminds us that peace is possible.
