Why do we celebrate the Nativity?
Darla Steinert recently let me borrow a great little book called “Why the Nativity” by David Jeremiah. In little daily devotions, he walks his readers through different parts of the Christmas story and why each part was important. The book is filled with 25 different reasons why we celebrate the Nativity, and obviously, some are better (and more biblical) than others. But we have selected three of these devotions to use for our Wednesday night Advent services beginning on November 29. We’ll be asking, “Why the Prophecies?”, “Why did Jesus come when he did?”, “Why Mary?”, and “Why Bethlehem?” As we ask and wrestle with these questions, we hope that you will be drawn deeper into the nativity story and experience it in some new ways this year during our Wednesday evening Advent services.
