Advent & Christmas 2016: Family Life

The "perfect family Christmas" is a pretty elusive dream. This season, we’ll look not only at our understanding of family life, but also at God’s. The good news is that God has entered into our world of disappointment, loss, and pain to bring healing and hope. In the gift of his own Son, Jesus, God comes to us to declare that we are his beloved children, that He is our beloved Father, and that we are part of his own family.
