The longer we live in a broken world, the easier it is to lose our anticipation and our expectation about life and about God. This loss can be particularly felt at Christmas time, which is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year. But Luke chapter 1 tells the story that set the stage for Christmas. As we read it, it gives hope and expectation for our own Christmas celebration. Luke shows us how to regain an eager sense of expectation for Christmas, just by telling the story.
