Join us for John Maxwell's performance of Joseph, Father to the Stepson
Dessert and coffee provided after performance. Childcare is provided.
Hear Joseph’s version of the Christmas story. Even though meeting Mary turned this carpenter’s simple life upside down, he came to trust in God’s astonishing plan for his unconventional family.
Joseph appears in this production as an average man who is astounded that anyone would want to learn about him. "It's usually my wife who gets the press in this family," he says. He relates what it was like for Mary and him to receive the news that they were to be the parents of Emmanuel, the Son of the Most High. How do you raise a little boy who is unlike any other child who ever came into the world? And the obstacles don't end there. No one in the community understands who the father is. King Herod wants to kill the baby because of the prophecy that he will lose his throne to a newborn King of the Jews. "It was only through the will of God and a pesky angel that the baby survived at all," says Joseph.
