When is Christmas over? When is the appropriate time to pack it up for another year? From the commercial standpoint it's over on December 24. But from the spiritual standpoint it's never over. This sermon challenges us not to pack away Christmas, but to pack ourselves with Christmas, because we need our Christmas faith all year long.
