10:30 Sermon- Rev. James Shoopman, “Christmas Spirit or Christmas Madness?”
While the commercial drive to buy more than we can afford for everyone on our “list” is a kind of madness that can inflict real self-harm, it can also be a celebration of the remarkable human capacity for joyful generosity. If you must go broke, there are worse ways than by showering those around you with gifts, so long as they are sincere expressions of love and appreciation.
