In 1965 a half-hour Christmas show entitled A Charlie Brown Christmas first appeared on TV. Appointed director of the holiday school pageant, Charlie Brown ventures out with Linus to buy the perfect artificial Christmas tree. Instead they bring back a pathetic little tree…a real one. The whole experience leaves Charlie Brown feeling depressed and lonely…some of the same emotions that many of us feel as we navigate through the demands of a season driven by shopping, parties and expectations that often go unmet. Join us for a three-week series entitled “A Better Than Perfect Christmas” as we look at what it means to be real in a world preoccupied with the pursuit of perfection. In Part 1 Pastor Mike unpacks one of the most common issues we experience in life and especially during this time of year. Enjoy!!!
