And this, quite simply, is Christmas – the most extraordinary act of giving the world will ever know... Yet we seem so lost in our inability to respond. How can we ever thank God for the gift of His only Son? (pause) There is only one thing our heavenly Father wants in return. This Christmas, may each of us give God this gift…the gift of our heart.
