Sometimes, this time of year just seems to happen to us. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

The Holidays can seem as chaotic, random and thrown together as those 24-7 Christmas music stations. Going from Black Friday to church pageants to being frisked by the TSA to family gatherings feels like going from Santa Baby, to the Little Drummer Boy, to You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch, to Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. And we end up like Charlie Brown screaming, “Can’t Anyone Tell Me What Christmas Is All About?”

My family has benefited from recognizing the season of Advent. And Michael Card’s beautiful CD The Promise is one I go back to over and over. Michael joins me on BreakPoint this Week to walk through the big story of Christ’s coming from the Old Testament to the New. It’s something you’ll want to listen to –go to BreakPoint.org and click on the “This Week” tab. And, I’ve prepared a special Advent study for you and your family which is available together with Michael’s CD. Find out more at breakpoint.org.
