What If Mary & Joseph Had Facebook?

Each year many of us try to find new ways to communicate the meaning of the season. The birth of the Christ child in a lowly manager resonates in our hearts and lives each day and we strive to share the warmth and affection of His life and ministry. I found this video that I thought I would share today. If you use Facebook, then you’ll get it…. If not, enjoy the words and the music. They are rich with meaning.

    Thank you for posting this. I shared, too. Word needs to spread of this old, old story that is new each year.


  4. I, too, love this. If Jesus came back today He would have all kinds of new ways to reach people;-) I think it’s really cool how the advancement of technology in general sort of ‘clarifies’ for me the sheer intelligence of God: For example, the new ‘timeline’ on Facebook allows everyone to see exactly what comments we made 3 yrs ago on a certain date and time, to whom, and what we were doing, when. If ‘man’ is capable of keeping these kinds of records, surely God has everything written down and each second of time will be clear to all of us one day. Of course he doesn’t ‘dwell’ on the negatives & will ‘erase’ things we want to let go of if we ask and sincerely take responsibility for our misdeeds…but isn’t it cool how that simple analogy just shows if man can do this, God is certainly a zillion times more creative, intelligent and capable and has all kinds of awesome things in store for us?!?!
