Christmas is supposed to be a season full of peace and goodwill as we celebrate the Savior’s physical arrival into this world. So why are we often bombarded with feelings of pressure and extreme stress? We know Advent’s not supposed to be this way, but how do we change it?
Join Rick and Steph in the first episode of a month-long pursuit of the heart of Advent while seeking to draw near to Jesus. Seeking relief from Christmas stress, we’ll examine three examples of how Jesus responded to people facing stressful situations.
