Challenging Advent

I like and don't like these advent videos. I like the images used, although Mary and Joseph seem pretty down in the dumps. But maybe that is the point. It is easy to cover over their story with the joy of a new baby and who that baby is and  forget that the whole experience was probably shocking, numbing and overwhelming. I am not sure I like all the voice over. Maybe it is all too direct. At any rate these videos allow us to think about the lead up to the birth of Jesus with new eyes.
