We place Christmas on a pedestal of gifts, family time and joy – but Christmas 2020 feels far from perfect. The first Christmas wasn’t perfect either: a filthy stable, a genocidal king, and a refugee baby who would save us.

After a long, hard year, Christmas doesn't seem to shine any brighter. Can we hope for something more than a break from the grind?
Christmas is often placed on a pedestal of gifts, family time and joy. But in 2020, has Christmas cheer been swapped for worry and fear? Are you Zoomed-out and burnt-out?
The first Christmas wasn't perfect either. Look back to the nativity in all its gritty reality: a filthy stable, a genocidal king, a refugee baby.
In a world divided and broken by politics, racial inequality, poverty and rising mental health problems, hear the better story: light in the darkness, hope in despair and the king our world desperately needs.
