There is a mysterious space between human conversation and divine prayer where some of our most honest questions can be found. Questions like, “Why is this happening to me? How do I know this is real? What will become of my life?” This Advent, we will explore these liminal questions with the help of the Gospel according to Luke. As we retell the story of Jesus’ birth, we will journey with those who carried the truth of his existence—all the while trusting that the best things are found in the most unexpected of places.
