Not So Perfect Christmas

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

Can we hope for something more than a break from the grind this Christmas?

Christmas is often placed on a pedestal of gifts, family time and joy. But after lockdowns and a pandemic, 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.
