Get Your Spirit in Shape: Christmas through Joseph’s Eyes


“His is a beautiful and moving story that I think inspires us,” says the Rev Adam Hamilton of Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus. “Often we go right to Mary, and we go right to the Christ Child, but we miss out on this man who likely formed and shaped much of Jesus’s self-understanding, his understanding of God, and what God is like.”

In this podcast episode, the author of Faithful: Christmas through the Eyes of Joseph, offers lessons from the man who raised Jesus that teach us about character, fatherhood, and following by faith wherever God leads.

The Rev. Adam Hamilton is pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas.
