Because God is a God of relationships and stories, the birth of Christ is not a solitary, disconnected event. The birth of Christ is woven into the fabric of relationships and the stories of others. This week we begin to explore the connection between Jesus and John the Baptist with a specific focus on John’s father, Zechariah. Zechariah offers a blessing for John’s life at the time of his birth, a blessing that will shape John’s life and ministry for all his days.
Scripture passage: Luke 1:57-80
