Series Description

Over the past few months the headlines have been frightening! It seems that every day brings a new hurricane, twitter-storm, nuclear test, federal indictment, racial incident or harassment revelation. Many of us are afraid to check the news anymore, but even more afraid not to, lest we get blindsided by a new policy that might change the course of our lives!

On a dark night 2000 years ago, a group of shepherds were accosted by an Angel, and we read that like many of us today, “they were terrified!” But that angel instructed “Do not be afraid. I bring Good News… 

As many of us feel afraid today, we want to hear again the Angel’s promise and discover why Christmas is still “Good News of Great Joy for ALL the people.”
