As we approach Christmas, the stores, the newspaper ads, and the radio and TV commercials remind us over and over that we need more…more lights, more fancy foods, more presents under the tree,  more of everything to make us happy.  But is that what we really want…what we really need?  The Bible reminds us that JESUS must become greater in our lives, and therefore we must become less, and must want less so that there will be more room for Jesus in our lives.  Listen as Pastor Schmidt talks about “Where Less is More.”
