Dear Pastor Sam Column
Dear Pastor Sam,
I wanted to ask a question about the Christmas story. The shepherds and the wisemen didn’t arrive the same time as most Christmas stories tell it, right?

Dear Set The Record Straight,
Yes you are correct they didn’t arrive at the same time. Most Church plays and stories telling the Christmas story lump they whole group together so they can tell the whole story at one time. If you check the scripture you will see the wisemen came to a house not the stable. It was probably a year or so later. Thanks for your question.
