The purpose of Christmas is to enlist us, sign us up. It’s to engage our hearts.
In this sermon, Rev Glynn Cardy begins by taking about 5 facts of Christmas. E.g. Fact 1 being there are no facts about Christmas! (Save that Jesus was born and, not surprisingly, had a mother. And that he was a Palestinian Jew). Glynn goes on to introduce the different characters in the Christmas cast and what the authors might have been intending for us to learn from it all.
