St Paul’s Church in Auckland is famous for the impossibly cuuuuute nativity videos they produce each year, starring their kids.
This year they have also released this compelling short film for adults, reminding us that Jesus was a Palestinian.
There are several parts where my eyes widened. Watch for the shepherd (who has an accounting degree) talking about why Mary wouldn’t have been happy to be pregnant.
In these last days of Advent, this is a stilling reminder of the peace-bringer we are anticipating, and our responsibility to bring and make peace.
