We call them characters for many reasons. You may know them well, or you may just be getting to know them. Their names are written in the scriptures and help us encounter the birth of Christ over and over again. But, their character, their mental and moral quality, shines in the Christmas story. Who are these characters?
Mary and Joseph, Elizabeth and Zechariah, angels and shepherds, and the central character, Jesus.
Every year, as we prepare to celebrate Christmas, we journey with the prophets and the people around us to the manger. This year, as you journey through Advent and prepare for Christmas, explore the courage of the characters of Christmas.
