Missing Christmas – Week 2: Overcoming Selfishness

Missing Christmas – Week 2: Overcoming Selfishness

Today, we are excited to continue our Christmas sermon series. As we learn from the Christmas stories in Matthew and Luke, we can miss out on the real meaning of Christmas. Whether it is distraction, selfishness, disappointment, there are many things that can keep up from being transformed by Jesus’ birth. Today, we learn about the choice we have at Christmas between worship and selfishness.
