For many, Christmas is a time of excitement and joy as loving families share in the festive traditions of the season. But for others, the Christmas holidays are only a reminder of what is missing in life. Merry Christmas? tells the stories of three such people. Sherry was abused as a child and sank into a life of prostitution, crime, and drug use. For her, Christmas was always the time when she hit rock bottom. As a young girl, Mirasel was orphaned after a natural disaster struck her native Philippines. She spent years without the love and support of a family. Vinny, an aspiring rock musician was on the road to fame and fortune until his wife died tragically and he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, events that shattered him and derailed his hopes and dreams. Yet, through the struggles and pain these three individuals have found the grace to cope with their losses and move ahead in faith. Pastor Mark Jeske of the Time of Grace television program hosts this Christmas special and brings perspective to these stories as he unveils how the Christmas story speaks to hurting people.
