THE GOSPEL OF LUKE
BEGINS, DECEMBER 2, 2018
Whether Christmas is your most celebrated holiday of the year, or even if you are just plain worn out by it, the truth is the words 'manger', 'swaddling', and 'shepherds' have a deep imprint on many of us. This is also true of the Christmas characters: who was Mary really? A literary character described for the benefit of the story? Or was she just a scared, anonymous, teenaged mom struggling to apply her faith to her situation? As we open up the book of Luke, our hope is to recover the authentic people and world behind the stories, and apply the hope of Jesus' birth to our world today. Please join us as we open up these 'Advent Stories'.
