THE UNITED BENEFICE OF STEEPLE ASTON WITH NORTH ASTON AND TACKLEY
A Village Advent Calendar - part 2
The story continues: now we swap from Luke's story about the angel appearing to Mary to Matthew's story, where Joseph hears what is going to happen. An angel appears to him in a dream and tells him to call Mary's son Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. The baby will be 'Immanuel', an ancient Hebrew word meaning 'God with us'. And Joseph believes the angel and takes Mary home. Thanks to the Shaylers, the Bellringers (whose box has sound effects!) the PCC and the Birds!
