People are hurting. Families are hurting. Young people are hurting. Elderly people are hurting. Sometimes the holiday season only serves to intensify the pain. That’s why I’m going to do a special series of sermons as we get ready for Christmas. It’s called “Help for the Holidays.” The main idea is that life can be hard, so Jesus came to help. Each week between now and Christmas we’re going to look at an encouraging passage of Scripture and invite Jesus to come beside us and help us through the hurts that we feel. Won’t you join me in praying that God will use these messages to help the hurting this holiday season.
