Wind blew some of the straw roof off this stable on Broad Street, but that doesn't change the Good News that Christ is born.
The Nativity scene is said to have been introduced by St. Francis of Assisi back around the 13th Century as a visual way to tell the Christmas story. It's a story that changed the history of the world and has the power to change human hearts.
The Bible proclaims Christ to be God incarnate called the Son of God, "God with us," the Savior, everlasting Lord, Prince of Peace, King of Kings... long-awaited Messiah. Hallelujah for the good news!
