Living the Story
The Feast of the Nativity. The birth of Jesus Emmanuel God With Us people together. Stories from to be to law. Schools, are they White?
This one we want to continue to during every visit. We had a chance to talk about famine conditions that can Overlook it through the adventurous actually end of resistance from the generations just as baby to can be like this with Christmas.
How do you tell the story to the generations that are to follow us?
We know the story. Well, that's all.
But is the world about you Rachel that transformation used to be a daunting task?
In the digital world.
Show me just happened. What happened to the Nativity Story? Doesn't make it right?
young people understand came out picture that we see, it seems to me that this nativity scene communicates, something about what Joseph what he's talking about and then you put angels, people shipments and wise people who actually derive, the supreme leader presence of them. And those people, those angels heaven heaven held the students to come, and the wise ones are getting start this place. They arrived unexpectedly to affirm this food. These people have a really important role.
I want to ask you a question and I give a young people to run around with the different characters in this nativity scene.
Who is are being controlled not biological.
Who has been pregnant and giving birth.
You see some of these things. And sometimes the only character in the scene that we identified is that We can each have experience to us as we even if we don't remember.
And as we listen to the story, we learn Through the Ages through his shipments, through the Metro, then the ones that are that name.
So it is the people around us are named us that acknowledge us and approve of the they are to her change and to bring us it is through them.
so the third page that idea of wanted to tell this activity storm to our children and to those who are He has you wanting to communicate. Do you simply want to witness you see? Young people have The story inside Rangers.
Doesn't influence on how we choose to interact and Roach.
What we decide is important.
What might the story be revealing? And what difference does it make?
Well, I would like to suggest that this story reveals the potential for the Divine to come to us. Each of us to be translated and known in the world through us.
Like a school child is little in our hands. And our arms. Always not. But Holiness with in life, It is this that makes it possible from the words of Isaiah that through us the young Buddha, across the shoulders of the road of your Crucible.
Just a short you usable not far from somebody had a dream, a dream, an impossible mission was a majorette and along with their can courage and determination and sisters. That are hopeful dreams, could be made not to benefit those who kept dreaming so they can boast to make a mess with the lost and at least with fine.
Of contagious protection and caught the imagination. And willingness of those who make the people of this place, 95 to our local and national government Healthcare developers, businesses are dicks project managers who lives, fundraisers and fungus, The collective will be expertise to hands and hearts and giving or so many and ruled the street and place of honor not eating.
Some of us all through this Impossible Dream last night and it's nameless. You walk outside - words are words of calculation of work of the spirit, the announcement or going through each space. People ask to touch each other.
The speech is argument. It was saved. This is the aim of is, what will make this baby? Have my father weeping, Is there?
Then from Branch, should come into being the center, stone treatment itself, as having sleep last night.
And as we mentioned, talked here, after this immense, as we share food together to complete the event, and we talk about those people, those project managers, The Architects, the show started construction workers business own sponsors politicians from places or financing is for this project. This what do you mean?
Constant Association is straightforward is not the nature construction, especially with not bad.
Even so it was a sense of worthiness in this project that stood out from others, someone who's respected their back for the chance they could. Well I was struck by The Gentle generosity other people. All those people really want.
This would be more some people getting. I think we can create places that we can be part of making our society, unless we are proud to live in participating.
And the really neat thing is each of them doing what they do. Best was what was needed was what was wanted for was made.
To me, the very real strength.
so, To talk about.
Or do we want to find ways to live the story Act?
We've each be an immortal child. This is the character that we had anticipated.
