Video I made for “Faces at the Manger” Series at Strawbridge… and, more particularly, focus a few weeks ago on Mary.
Brian Bate’s song is so meaningful.
Admittedly, I felt a certain pull to the Judy Garland clip at the beginning. Of course, there was/is her singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Beyond that, though, there’s the reminder of a tragic life that looked so “merry” on the outside but, oh, so hollow and pained at deeper levels—the kind of soul that Jesus came to rescue.
May God bless us all with a Mary Christmas—even as we are mindful of the brokenhearted and downtrodden!
