The Father's Gift
A big part of Christmas in America is the presents. And there are basically two types of people when it comes to shopping: Those who began shopping in June and those who begin on Christmas Eve. And every January, the second type resolves that they are going to become the first type, but they never do. One of the problems with the second type is they tend to buy presents that are spontaneous, expensive, and not particularly useful. But on that first Christmas many years ago, God the Father gave us the most precious gift He has, and the gift we most needed. Sunday we begin our Advent series "A Very Different Christmas" and kick it off with "The Father's Gift"!
