Sermon "Reclaim Christmas: Giving Up on Perfect"

Theme - Our Advent and Christmas focus this year centers on the theme, "Reclaim Christmas."  On this Sunday, we discover that we don't need to be perfect to be used by God. Like Mary in the Christmas story, we are simply called to be open to how God wants to use us to be a blessing to others.
