The Saddest Christmas Story Ever Told

Average Rating: Not rated  [see ratings/reviews]

It's hard to imagine that Christmas has a dark side. Isn't Christmas all about good cheer, happy families, and shopping excursions?

In this week's featured sermon, "Rachel Weeping," Ken Langley reminds us that if we don't honestly address the dark side of the season—as the Bible does—the "Rachels" of the world will simply write us off. Here's a powerful sermon to help your people look at the Christmas season with fresh eyes, eyes of compassion for the world's broken and hurting.
