God spoke to people through the prophets lots of times in the Old Testament. And then God stopped. For Four. Hundred. Years. (that’s quite a long time)

And then one day, quietly, some strange things began to happen. Rumours of angels began to circulate. A few people who remembered the Old Story started to pay attention.

But looking back afterwards almost no-one could admit they had the slightest idea of what God was about to do.

A baby in an animal food trough. God with us. One of us.

The idea was so crazy most people couldn’t believe it – and they didn’t. Some did, and their lives were turned upside down.

How amazed by God’s grace are you this Christmas?
