The Christmas story is a familiar one, a young mom, no room at the inn, strange visitors in the small town of Bethlehem 2,000 years ago. We can relate to parts of it, but some cultural things are so far removed from us it almost becomes fairy tale like. One emotion that stands out in the story that we can all relate to, young or old, rich or poor, male or female is the emotion of fear. Fear is seen in this story from its first announcement through the raising of young Jesus as a boy. What are you afraid of this Christmas?
