Everybody says they remember the line, "Play it again, Sam," from the movie Casablanca?, but it turns out that Humphrey Bogart's Rick doesn't ever say those exact words--and neither does anybody else! We have a way of ?thinking? we know how a story goes, and can end up either misunderstanding, misreading, or even inventing details that weren't quite there. Maybe it's no big deal if we do it with an old movie, but what if we are inserting extra characters or parts to Bible stories? Think we'd never do that? Here's a question--ever hear a sermon about "that stingy innkeeper" from the Christmas story, who won't let Mary and Joseph have a room in his inn? Well... he's not really there. And neither is the inn! Join pastors Erica and Steve for a dig into the nitty-gritty details of the Christmas story and how to hear it ?less? as a morality lesson ("Don't be stingy like that mean old innkeeper...") and more as it was meant to be heard: a picture of the amazing grace of a God who meets us right in the noise, bustle, commotion, and messiness of human life. Join in on the conversation, and hear the Christmas story again with new ears...
