It’s quite common for the most joyous time of year to intensify feelings of anger, doubt, and disappointment in us.

Their stories are as messy as ours, but through them we see God working and find assurance that He is doing the same for us. In this week’s message we meet Zechariah and Elizabeth hearing the news that they will be welcoming a son, John the Baptist, despite their old age—proving that nothing is impossible with God!
