Because of the Messiah in a Manger w/ Bradley Wilcox, BYU Religion Professor - BYUMS Phoenix Webinar

Dec 10, 2020, 7:00 – 8:30 PM

For some people Christmas is not the happiest time of the year. Christmas is not always happy for those who are alone, far from family, or who had a loved one die in December. I’m afraid “merry and bright” don’t just automatically come with the season. They have to be a conscious choice. Come listen to how we can stay focused on Christ at Christmas and all year. He is the source of enduring joy!

About this event

The BYU Management Society Phoenix, Denver, and San Diego Chapters are excited to co-host and invite you to this Virtual Christmas Devotional event with Bradley R. Wilcox!

One December I saw a clever sign on the marquee of a Christian church: “Christmas is not your birthday!” I got their point, but I still had to disagree because I was born right on December 25th. Despite the drawbacks, my Christmas birthday has always added sparkle to the season and made Christmas joyous. However, for some people Christmas is not the happiest time of the year. Consider the parents waiting in line so their screaming children can see Santa. Think of the store employees who watch people stampede over each other like animals to get the latest electronic gadgets. What about the frazzled teachers who have to deal with children who have been loaded up on sugar since Halloween? Consider the UPS drivers who deal with furious customers when packages arrive late or the airport workers when flights are canceled. In a more serious vein, Christmas is not always happy for those who are alone, far from family, or who had a loved one die in December. I’m afraid “merry and bright” don’t just automatically come with the season. They have to be a conscious choice. Come listen to how we can stay focused on Christ at Christmas and all year. He is the source of enduring joy.
