(Podcast) The Stress of Advent and The Pursuit of Jesus
Episode 49: The Stress of Advent and The Pursuit of Jesus
Christmas is a supposed to be a season full of peace and good will as we celebrate the savior’s physical arrival into this world.
So why instead are we often bombarded with feelings of pressure and extreme stress? We know Advent’s not supposed to be this way, but how do we change it?
Join Rick and Steph as they kick off a month-long pursuit of the heart of Advent while seeking to draw near to Jesus. Searching for relief from Christmas stress, we’ll examine three examples of how Jesus responded to people facing stressful situations.
