For over a century the very well known Christmas classic has been asking the question, "what child is this?". However, the song is only asking the question that has been in the forefront of humanity's mind since that first Christmas. The shepherds must have been awe struck as they were created by a choir of angels- but they might be even more awe struck to find that this child would become The Good Shepherd.
Most everyone in our culture has heard that “Jesus is the reason for the season”, but what does that really mean? We celebrate Christmas with traditions, stories, family time, presents, and food… but shouldn’t there be more? If Jesus was who he said he was- then there has to be so much more to this season than what’s on the surface. Through the Christmas and advent season Exchange is working through a series called “What Child Is This?”- to help us understand the significance of Jesus in the manger thousands of years ago and in our life today.
