Taking inspiration from the Las Posadas festival, Church Army's Advent resource enables churches and families to journey through the Christmas story by hosting Mary and Joseph. It's a chance to invite those in your community to join in on the fun as well as reflect on those who don't have a place to stay, just like Mary and Joseph didn't have a place to stay when they arrived in Bethlehem.
