Joy. Joy! Joy? Joy.
One of the more beloved songs to sing in Advent and Christmas is, “Joy to the world.” Many of us have great memories of singing it as children, perhaps as carolers, definitely in larger groups at church or carol sing-a-longs. But do we actually believe it? Do the church and the people who make up the church really believe we have something to give the world? Something to bring or create joy?
Joy can be a tricky thing to explain or describe. I do my best in the sermon(s) and I hope it will be of use to you.
As always I hope you will find value in these Words from the middle and feel free to let me know what you think.
