A Spoken Word from a lesser-explored Nativity perspective

A guy finds out his fiancé is pregnant, but guess what? He knows for a fact he’s not the Dad.

Dai Woolridge performs a Spoken Word helping us to imagine the thoughts and emotions running through Joseph’s head when he found out that Mary was pregnant.

As we see Joseph process the news, then reflect on the revelation given to him – we see anger give way to astonishment as he realises that his step son is none other than ‘Emmanuel’, God with us.
