Advent is here. It is beginning to look like Christmas, with all of the holiday decorations, busy shoppers (and delivery people), and more. Around the Thanksgiving table (or screen), the questions start. What do you want for Christmas? What are your Christmas plans? Is your tree up yet? But the one question that Rev. Linda discusses today is one that all of us should ask ourselves. What if…?
What if Mary and Joseph had said, “No”? They both had MANY reasons that would have justified a rejection. How different would our world look? Rev. Linda guides us through the story of the birth of Jesus this Advent season by looking first at two of the most important characters in the manger scene: Mary and Joseph.
