The Other Side of Christmas

We associate the Christmas story with angels, shepherds, donkeys, and a cute little baby wrapped in swaddling clothes. All of that is true, and it is part of the story – but there is another part. A part that tells of a Savior who came to die and a boy who would grow up to divide mankind into two parts. As we come to this text today, read with eyes that see the shadow of a cross over the manger.

Luke 2:33-38
