The Story of the Nativity

Have you ever wondered how we got our Nativity scene?  The Gospels give us the story of Christ’s birth, of course, but how did we get the tradition of placing a creche on our fireplace mantle, or on the coffee table, or in the front of our churches?  When did churches start dramatizing Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, or when did choirs begin to sing about the angels’ praises to the shepherds in the field while they took care of their flocks?  Well, the answer is St. Francis!

Jesus Is The Answer

Some of you will recognize the name Andre Crouch – a gospel singer who was popular when I was a teen and young adult.  I loved to listen to his music and I loved to sing along with him, and one of those songs was entitled “Jesus is the Answer.”  I was thinking about these words in relation to my time of prayer this morning.  I’ve been praying for our nation; we are in such desperate times.  The anger, the outright hatred and venom that is being spoken; the mistrust; the lies and the blatant disregard for civility are sucking the life out of our nation and our world.  But think of these words from that song:  “Jesus is the Answer for the world today, above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the Way!”  There are too many people, even Christians, who feel like that this is trite, not helpful and a waste of time to believe this, that we need to get busy and change the world ourselves, but I hope you’ll stick with me and read the rest of this and let me tell you why I don’t believe that at all.
