Sunday Advent 2: Thriving Christmas Parents – Mary and Joseph

December 9, 2018

Children are a gift of God. The gift deserves gratitude. There is no entitlement or privilege for parents. Parenting is a giving role, a role of descent. Parents are stewards of something they do not possess. Hannah understood God’s gift (1 Samuel 2:1-10). Mary understood her role and was deemed faithful (Luke 1:46-55).
