The Characters of Christmas: Mary TheCharactersofChristmas  |   |  Tom Hufty

Surrender means giving up. In today’s context, it means giving up your personal plan in exchange for playing a part in God’s plan. Last week we saw Joseph give up his reputation as a tsaddiyq for God’s plan to be fulfilled through him. It was a surprise for him and others around him. This weekend, we'll look at another character of Christmas and consider her surrender to God's plan.
