December 23, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair presents part 1 of the message "JOY".
Today I'm going to begin a two-part message. I'm going to being the first part today and finish it up real quick tomorrow evening.
Let me begin by asking you a question. When I say the words 'Christmas' and 'Jesus', what words come to mind? If we really think about it, there are often at least four words that are most always associated with 'Jesus' at 'Christmas'. They are Love, Peace, Hope, and of course Joy.
And I would submit that the number one word associated with Jesus at Christmas is Joy. In fact, JOY is a cultural icon of Christmas.
