In Episode 85, we dive into a more festive topic, however it is not as merry as you think! We take a different approach to what you commonly might around this time of the year and investigate the almost forgotten, dark underbelly of the Christmas tale about, 'The King Who Almost Killed Christmas'.
Whilst this is a story we don't share very often, the meanings behind, 'The King Who Almost Killed Christmas' is quite profound. It contains five major lessons that'll deepen our relationship with God, and in the long run is an important message we all need to hear.
Tune in now and let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
