You can now watch Wal-Mart TV's Christmas Special online. My dad also forwarded a transcript of his talk which I'll paste below, too. Christmas services at Saddleback start tonight!
“What is the purpose of Christmas? We find the meaning of Christmas in
the words that the angel gave us 2,000 years ago: It’s a time for celebration, it’s a time for salvation and it’s a time for reconciliation. The angels said three things: I bring you good news of great joy; Unto you is born a Savior and peace on earth good will toward men.

This Christmas, make it a time for celebration. It’s a time for good news of great joy. Celebrate the good news in life, not the bad news. Look for the good news: God’s love for you. Make it a time where you don’t just go through the season thinking you just want to get it over with, make it a time to really celebrate. I bring you good news of great joy.

Make it a time for salvation. You know the Salvation Army for over 100 years has been using Christmas as a time to collect funds that minister to people all year long; the uneducated, the sick, the poor, the defenseless, the orphan, those who need it most. What does salvation mean? In a word, it means freedom, freedom from fear, freedom from guilt, freedom from bitterness, freedom from loneliness. It means
freedom from my past and free to look into the future with confidence. This is the message of freedom, the message that the Salvation Army has been bringing for over 100 years.

Then make it a time for reconciliation. The first Christmas the angels said, ‘Peace on earth, good will toward men’ and I don’t know a time in our history when we’ve needed the message of reconciliation more. We need to be reconciled to our families; to our neighbors; to our enemies; to other nations; to each other. It doesn’t matter what religious background you have. We need to be reconciled to God and to each other. This is the message that I hope you’ll carry this Christmas.”
