Hear the twelve voices of Christmas

Ever wondered what was going through Joseph’s head when he first heard the news about Mary’s pregnancy? Or wondered how Zacharias might have responded to his punishment for disbelief?

It’s becoming an annual tradition here during Advent to call attention to one of my favorite Christmas devotional series: The Twelve Voices of Christmas. It’s a series of twelve meditations on the Christmas story from the perspective of its participants, from the angel Gabriel to the three Wise Men.

I like this series of devotionals because, among other things, it seeks out a few of the lesser-known characters in the Christmas drama, like Simeon and Anna. Each character’s story is short and easily readable (or listenable); if you’re looking for a few additional points of reflection this holiday season, take a look.
