The Nativity isn't only a story for the month of December. There is truth and insight to be gained for every day of our Christian lives. By taking a closer look at the "supporting cast" of Jesus' birth--Joseph, Mary, and the shepherds, we see a miracle wrought in their lives. That God uses ordinary people to fulfill His plan and purpose. And that is a miracle you can be part of as well.
If a poll were taken of Old Testament Jews on the birth of their Lord and Savior, what percentage do you think would have predicted that the cast of characters would be a virgin teenager betrothed to a lowly carpenter, barnyard animals, and stinky shepherds? Probably not many.
In Do You See What I See? pastor Ross Parsley shows how God uses ordinary people to fulfill His plan and purpose. He gives a warm, humorous, and uniquely honest look into the nativity story. Along the way he highlights how God's favor and plans are often followed by dashed hopes, heartache, and disappointment. But he also shows that if we're faithful with what God puts in front of us we can accomplish the extraordinary.
Ross Parsley is lead pastor of ONE Chapel, a new church in Austin, Texas. He is also a renowned worship leader. In 2007 Ross helped guide the church family at New Life Church in Colorado Springs through a major transition as the interim senior pastor. Ross and his wife, Aimee, have five children.
