On this episode, Sandra and Pastor Riley discuss the phenomenon that for many people, the Advent and Christmas seasons are full of traditions...and stress. People who don't attend the rest of the year go to church, expecting to hear the familiar Christmas narrative and relive childhood memories. (Or at least as close as they can get.) Everyone likes the nice Baby Jesus story of Christmas, but what we really need to hear is the undiluted, full-on, Gospel--that we needed Baby Jesus to be born so He would grow up and die for our sins.
