A New Jewish Girl

Passage: Luke 1:26-56

When we read the Bible, especially the story of Jesus' birth, we tend to fill in details and gaps with our own personal narratives, cultural norms, and social structures. On this fourth Sunday of Advent, guest pastor Peter shakes our presumptions about life in the time that Mary was pregnant with Jesus, and challenges us to respond as Mary did when faced with life altering news.
