Christmas is a time of peace, but the first Christmas was filled with anxiety as Mary and Joseph searched for a place to give birth. A Reader’s Theatre presentation for Advent based on the account from the Gospel of Luke reminding us that Jesus was born into the world because the world truly needs peace.
What others are saying:
We used all 5 readings in our Advent services this year. Thank you! They added a beautiful depth and focus for our times together and brought important insight into much about that first Christmas, but also to our ongoing need for the hope, peace, joy, love and presence of our Savior.
~ Pastor Kelly Sikstrom
