Christmas in the Beginning
Saturday, December 10 at 4:00 PM

Did Christmas begin in the First Century? Or does it have deeper roots before Christ’s birth? Join Charles Morris for a Christmas special called “Christmas in the Beginning” as he explores the promises and events found in the Old Testament pointing to the coming of Jesus—the most wonderful gift of all. Interspersed with music and featuring stories from Lee Strobel, Joni Eareckson Tada, Admiral Barry Black, Sally Lloyd-Jones, and Randall Goodgame. “Christmas in the Beginning” offers hope and perspective during the season that is truly all about Jesus.

Unwrapping Christmas in the Old Testament
Saturday, December 17 at 4:00 PM

For most of us, our vision of Christmas is limited exclusively to the gospel accounts. But Christmas is actually unwrapped in the Old Testament! Dr. Charlie Dyer from The Land and the Book will do some great exploration with compelling guests in a journey that will take listeners to a fresh appreciation of the real story of Christmas.

Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
Sunday, December 18 at 3:00 PM

Charles Dickens was just 12 years old when he saw firsthand the devastating effects of child labor. He never forgot those images. In 1843 he wrote a pamphlet titled: “An Appeal to the People of England, on Behalf of the Poor Man’s Child.” It became A Christmas Carol. Focus on the Family Radio Theatre brings to life the story of miserly Scrooge who in one momentous night is confronted by his own lack of compassion – and given the opportunity to change not only his life but others too! It’s a message that defines the spirit of the season of Christ’s birth, of His loving compassion!

The Hope of Hanukkah
Tuesday, December 20 at 8:00 PM

The Official Average Boy Christmas Special
Saturday, December 24 at 9:00 AM

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! With gift-giving (and receiving!) and tree-hunting with his dad, Average Boy stays busy . . . and finds a way to get into trouble. A pesky raccoon, Bob’s dog, and visiting cousins add to the zaniness. You’ll laugh at the holiday antics as you’re reminded of the true Reason for the season.

Wake Up Right

  • Connecting in an Age of Isolation and Incivility (Audio)
    As we enter the holiday season, we may feel the challenge of connecting in an age of isolation and incivility, the tension of awkward relationships, and the dread small talk around the table. It seems conversation is getting harder. Dr. Heather Holleman joined us on Wake Up Right and invited us to reimagine better conversations. Her new book demonstrates how we can develop authentic community by changing our relational mindsets to become more curious, to believe the best about others, to express concern about their lives, and to share our own.
