The story of Christmas for Joseph is a story of 4 surprises. The
first is some devastating news of Mary, his fiance's pregnancy. The
second, is a strange angelic visitor with a message from God. The
third, is a remarkable message that Mary's child is conceived by
God and he will save the world from their sins. The fourth surprise
is the most staggering of all - that the birth of Jesus shows that
God is Immanuel, God with us - a God who is commited to the world
in love. He is not far from us, but among us.
