Hosea 11:1-11; Colossians 3:1-11
“The story that defines us began with a strange dream and an unlikely healing opportunity somehow written in those stars.
It’s a crazy story really—a baby born in a barn that would save the world, a wandering teacher who spoke truth to power and crossed social boundaries and healed our brokenness ends up executed, life out of death, God amongst humans, compassion in the face of cruelty. This is a story not strong on plausibility.
But it is a story that excels at possibility.”
