Making A Difference In The Nation's Capital Through Prayer And Action

A Miracle in the Chaos!

Dec 1, 2018

Thank you for standing with us in 2018 as we now begin our countdown to one of our most unusual events on Capitol Hill – the Live Nativity. Some of our friends have asked why we do this unique processional. Over the next few emails we will detail some of our reasons. 

Sometimes life can be chaotic. Certainly it must have been for Mary and Joseph in the days leading up to the birth of Christ. 

The Gospel of Luke tells us, “And it came about in those days that a decree went out from Ceasar Augustus that all the world should be registered…and everyone went to their own town to register. (Luke 2:1) 

The miracle of the birth of Christ begins with reference to the actions of a powerful world figure living far away from the little village of Nazareth that was home to Joseph and Mary. Caesar Augustus decides to take a census of his empire. That decision, over which Joseph has no control, forces Joseph to take his pregnant wife Mary on a long, dangerous trek from Nazareth to Bethlehem. He was aware of God’s promise, but still had to make the difficult journey and trust God for the results.  

Such is life.  

Sometimes we find ourselves impacted by circumstances over which we have little or no control. Yet, often behind these seemingly random acts is the unseen hand of God, working His purposes. While human events were unfolding according the plans of a pagan emperor, disrupting lives and creating chaos, in reality, God was at work, fulfilling His divine promise to bring forth a Savior who would split the centuries and bring redemption to each one of us.  

That’s part of why we do the Live Nativity: To remind our nation’s leaders, whether they like it or not, that while they plan and legislate public policy, there is a God in heaven who directs the affairs of men and to whom we are all accountable – even representatives, senators, supreme court justices, and presidents! 

You see, there is just something about seeing the image of the holy family journeying around Capitol Hill – by the Senate office buildings – in front of the Supreme Court – and opposite the US Capitol that makes for a spectacle no one can ignore!  

It’s a stirring picture, and a reminder to powerful forces on Capitol Hill of who Jesus is and a stark example of just how much the Gospel is needed in our nation, perhaps today as never before. 

That’s exactly what your generous donation in support of the Live Nativity is doing. Through your gifts, you are helping us reach out to our nation’s leaders with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ!
