Open Road Students - Messy Christmas

Open Road Fellowship Church

“Joy to the world” is a catchy lyric, but can seem totally impossible when life feels messy. When we think “Christmas” we think “joyful celebration,” but what happens when the holiday season doesn’t match what’s actually happening around us? Know this: When life is hard, joy is still possible. When life is messy, joy is available. Why? Because when humanity was hurting, Jesus brought joy. In this 3-week Christmas series, Messy Christmas, we’re going to find a way to say “joy to the world anyway.”

It feels like the Christmas season is always telling us how we should feel about it. What words come to mind when you hear the word “Christmas”? Christmas is supposed to be the classic, joyful, wonderful time of year, but sometimes it just seems to miss. Still, every year it keeps such a special vibe. The truth is, sometimes that high bar of expectation is not the actual reality you're dealing with. So, is it even possible to experience joy, hope, and peace when Christmas seems so messy?
