Christmas is in the air… and in The Lutheran Witness!

This December, The Lutheran Witness will cover a festive array of topics relating to Advent and Christmas. Readers will find articles on Christmas candlelight services, family Advent activities, children’s Christmas programs and more in this issue, which also features a holiday gift guide for Lutherans.

Of special interest to many will be two feature stories on the Virgin Mary, one of the most beloved — and at times controversial — characters in the Christmas story. The Rev. Dr. Curtis Giese offers a historical view of Mary and her world in their first-century context, and the Rev. William Weedon provides a whirlwind tour through two millennia of theological reflection on the Mother of God.
