Christmas is the season where we sing songs like Joy to the World, but not all of us experience joy during the advent season. Life has robbed us of our joy. Our hearts are burdened as we carry forward. While we are surrounded by others celebrating the holidays, our hearts are heavy. The promise of joy is the promise the angels made to the shepherds: Good news of great joy for all people.
“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.”
Luke 2:10-11 NRSV
