Second Sunday of Advent

What joy at yesterday’s 76th Annual Christmas Pageant!! This special tradition of remembering the story of Jesus’ birth continues to fill our hearts each year. Thank you to all of the musicians, singers, readers, helpers and participants.

We’ve had some fun in Schmidt Chapel the last two weeks locating this Christmas story in the Bible. Matthew and Luke contain parts of the narrative that are familiar to us, yet the authors tell the story in different ways. It is interesting to compare Matthew 1 and 2 with Luke 1 and 2. Children are often surprised at what they discover is and isn’t there.

Watch this short video to learn how many wise men there really are in the Bible, and other fun facts!
