Life & Faith: Nativity

An unwed mother-to-be. A husband contemplating a quickie divorce. A host of glorious angels visit a group of lowly shepherds. A star appears and a group of wise men follow it. Laurel Moffatt tells us why the Nativity story still surprises, and delights, her today – and how she turned…
