Christmas is not meant to bring dread. With all the traffic, parties, expenses, and reunions, the Christmas season often brings a lot of hassle and inconvenience. More than this, it’s in this season that many of us experience various kinds of fears—not having enough resources, having awkward family reunions, and even sharing the gospel to our family and loved ones.
In our new series entitled “Hark!”, we will study the lives of different people in the events leading up to Jesus’s birth. Through this series, may we be reminded that Christmas is more than just the parties, traditions, the things we have (or don’t have), and our fears. May each of us truly celebrate Christmas—with joy, expectancy, and thanksgiving—and respond in a way that honors and pleases God.
Here is the list of weekly topics:

- Week 2: Fear Not but Trust God (Mary)
