Will our troubles really be "out of sight" next Christmas? The Bible doesn't say that. We are those who live knowing that "in this world you will have trouble..." Thankfully, the end of this Bible verse ends with a firm promise - "but take heart! I have overcome the world."

In this episode, Chara discusses how our hearts can be light this Christmas while not denying that trouble will surely come.

Verses referenced: John 16:33; John 14:3; Luke 2:10-11; Matthew 1:23; Psalm 34:18; Zephaniah 3:17; Psalm 23; Isaiah 9:6
