November 30, 2014 at Dakota

And so Advent begins for another year and we turn our hearts and minds to the manger scene in Bethlehem that is soon to be read and/or acted out in churches all over the world. The strange scenario begs a question that is too rarely asked or answered in all the holiday excitement - WHY?

Why are angels appearing to shepherds and singing this joyful proclamation?
Why are wise men travelling across the world following a star in search of a new born king?
Why is a terrified political ruler murdering a generation of babies?
Why is a claimed virgin giving birth, in fact, why would there need to be a visitation from God at all? 

I hope to see you Sunday as we set the stage for this wonderful season by searching out the answer to these and many more important questions.
