This week we’re talking with Erik about what excites him most about the Christmas season. I think we all agree that for some this time of year is filled with child-like joy. For others it’s heart-wrenching as they reflect on those who are no longer with them. But the true reason to celebrate the season is because God came to us.

No matter what you are facing this year, know that the good news of the Gospel is that Jesus came. Emmanuel, God with us. When we couldn’t do it on our own, God did it for us.

Merry Christmas to all of you, and may this be the good news you hold on to for the coming year.
