This Sunday we’ll be reading Luke 1:26-38, as we continue the story of Jesus as told by Luke’s gospel.
As you read that story, what do you see as similarities and differences between the story of Zachariah and that of Mary? How do you see yourself in this account? Isn’t it interesting that God chose to work in a backwoods town with a couple of “nobodies” instead of bringing Christ through well known rulers or highly respected religious leaders? What does that tell us about how and who God works with? What does that tell us about US?
