Matthew 1:18-25 The story about Joseph and his reaction of the news that Mary was ‘with child by the Holy Spirit.’ – It’s never happened before, but Isaiah prophesied about it 700 years earlier…
The story of the angel Gabriel bringing the news of God’s plans to Mary never grows old… God breathe freshly to our hearts…
A look at Luke 1 and the Christmas miracle of the ‘Other Nativity’ – Zacharias and Elizabeth’s miracle son John the Baptist.
Advent is a season to celebrate and anticipate the coming of Christ. Anchored in the past, living in the present and anticipating the future.
