Stories: Week 8

In this Christmas Eve service, Pastor Nathan Gagne brings us the eighth week of the "Stories" series; sharing about his experiences with a New England tradition, Yankee Swap (White Elephant in other parts of the country). In this game, each participant brings a gift & draws a number; each participant picks in order of their number & can trade for any other unwrapped gift after they've chosen a gift to unwrap. The person with the #1 is in the best position, because although they get to open first, they get to trade last once everything has been unwrapped. Pastor Nate equates Jesus' sacrifice on the cross to the best Yankee Swap, because He traded His sinless, perfect life for our blame-filled, imperfect lives.
