Pastor Rick Warren is considered to be one of the most influential religious leaders in the country. His book, the purpose driven life has been read by more than 60 million people worldwide and it is currently being re-released to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Before leaving for his annual Christmas vacation, Sean sat down with Pastor Warren to talk about the meaning of Christmas. “The very first Christmas the angels said three things. Those three things are the three purposes of Christmas. Celebration. Salvation. Reconciliation. Here are the three things. The first thing the angel announced is, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all people. Christmas is a time to celebrate and America right now needs to celebrate. People are down, they're discouraged. We've had four, nearly five years of bad economic news. We need a party,” Warren told Sean. “We need to celebrate. We need -- I bring you good news of great joy. By the way which shall be for all people,” added Warren.
