What gives us comfort and joy?

Christmas is a chance to spend time with family, celebrate and to take stock of the year that has passed, as well as look to the year to come. For some, this is a joyful occasion, but for others its one of loneliness and frustration. The Christmas roast can become a Christmas roasting. This collection of articles, talks and film reviews can help you get a perspective of what Christmas truly means in the historical sense and remind you of that Comfort and Joy.
