Although there’s one story that matters most, there are many stories of Christmas.
How did Mary and Joseph receive the news for instance? This was an unexpected turn in both of their lives and how does that inform the unexpected twists in our lives?
What about Mary’s cousin Elizabeth? Her role was integral to the coming of Jesus but what might her and her husband’s story teach us about living a God-honoring life even when life doesn’t deliver what we hoped for?
What about these shepherds we hear so much about? Is it possible they might have something to demonstrate to us about what it looks like to for ordinary people to experience something extraordinary.
