Christmas is just around the corner, which means it’s time for the annual family Christmas photo. These keepsakes are made around the Christmas tree, out on the porch, in the backyard, or wherever all the family can crowd into one place. Photographers will tell you not to forget the composition of the photo. In other words, not only is it important to get the whole family in the photo, but be sure the background of the photo looks right. There is nothing like having the perfect photo of the family at the park with a port-a-potty in the background.
The background matters. In most nativity scenes, Mary and Joseph are somewhere in the background. Mary is usually kneeling at the manger while Joseph stands dutifully behind her. This week, we take a look at their part in the story, learning how God can do amazing things through the faithfulness of his people (Matthew 1; Luke 1).
See you Sunday!
