The Christmas story amazes me. And I have had it loud and clear since I was 10 years old. Being able to look with fresh eyes at a profound entry to earth is a task I delight in.
This year @discoverychurch we are “meeting the people who met Jesus”.
This week, we meet the most unlikely characters to be introduced to Jesus. Shepherds. The second lowest rung on the social scale are the first port of call for the announcement of the birth of Christ.
I speak with many people who don’t think “Jesus is for them” I think the story of the Shepherds can radically change that perspective.
Remember, the announcement was made for you and the invitation includes you.
