When Christmas Disappoints | An Intentional Christmas

Christmas seems to always be about happiness, joy, good tidings of great joy, and wonderful memories. And all that is true, but sometimes disappointments even happen during the most wonderful time of the year. We can’t really appreciate the good things about Christmas until we understand the disappointments that come with it. Christmas is a difficult time of year for many people for many different reasons, and that was true about Joseph and Mary in the Bible, too. So what do we do when Christmas disappoints?

In this message, Pastor Jacob takes us through the beginning of the Christmas story with reactions from Joseph and Mary. He then brings out two practical points of what we can do to be intentional this Christmas.
