  • The story of Jesus’ birth is a familiar story, and that is a problem at Christmas.

    It is possible to believe we know a story so well that it is no longer a story with a message. It is possible to feel we know people so well that we no longer look at them with any real curiosity. And it is possible for God to be so present in a familiar story that we lose the ability to even see him.

    We know this to be true because familiarity with the story of Jesus was a unique hurdle Jesus faced when he returned to his hometown of Nazareth.
