Advent, week 4: Beyond Belief

We’ve begun ADVENT, a special season of waiting and hope, centered on Christ.

Mary was betrothed (engaged) to be married to an honorable man named Joseph.
When Joseph found out Mary was pregnant, he didn’t believe. (How can this be? She couldn’t be pregnant because Mary was a virgin.)

So God sent an angel to convince him this was good; this was the work of the Holy Spirit.
Joseph believed God and took Mary as his wife. Clearly, with God all things are possible! Truly, Jesus is God with us!
