It’s STILL the most wonderful time of year! A time to celebrate Jesus. Yes, there are those who will persist in rejecting him as Savior. However, these same people still cherish the very things Jesus came to bring us: hope, peace, joy, love…
As such, Christmas can be the most unifying time of year.
But that doesn’t make the story of Christmas easier to swallow. In fact, there are some extraordinary, outlandish things Christians believe about the inception of God’s salvation, a lot of which is wrapped up in a young Jewish teenager who lived over 2000 years ago in a backwater town in the Galilean hill country of Palestine. What on earth are we supposed to learn from such a story, and from such a strange figure like sweet, innocent Mary of Nazareth?
On this episode of The DBC Podcast, I sat down with co-hosts Brenda Russell (Minister with Children) and Allen Taliaferro (Discipleship Intern) to dig into the story of Mary and examine it from a variety of angles. We unearthed some amazing insights that, when it comes to food for thought, provides plenty of leftovers. We also got into what Christmas decorations hold the most personal meaning, why Allen hates colored Christmas lights, and the best placement for your Nativity scene wise men.
And here’s the most important part of this post. We need you to share your own thoughts with us about the Christmas story and its characters, as well as your personal opinions on Christmas decorations and symbols, and your picks for the best Christmas movies. We want it all, because it may be featured on our next episode. Let us know you’re out there by commenting below.
