The Nativity Story

On Sunday evening, 14 December, we showed “The Nativity Story.” The film underlined the poverty and war torn state of Palestine at the time of Jesus’ birth. It also showed how difficult and potentially disgraceful it was for the young girl, Mary, to be chosen to be the virgin mother. In addition, ito showed how difficult it was for Joseph.

By contrast, one had the visit of the outcast shepherds and the mysterious Magi from the East. It gave a mass of thought-provoking background as we run up to the main Christmas activities

It cost Jesus much to come to earth for us, but we should not forget the cost for Mary either.
