A Simple Christmas – Joy

Would you say that our world is joyful? We’d like it to be joyful, wouldn’t we? Especially at Christmas.  Do you ever try to talk yourself into joy?  Do you ever find yourself trying to manufacture or evoke joy from others?  The truth is that anyone can be joyful for a moment, when everything is going right.  But being joyful when everything is falling apart, constantly changing, or even just up in the air, that’s another story.  Can you imagine being joyful even when things aren’t going well?  I’m not talking about fake joy…where you force a smile and a cheery voice even when you’re about to lose it.  Where can we find unshakable joy?  That’s the focus of this message.
