  1. Good morning Joyce Wells Booze –
    I am reading an article from afa, that refers to an article you wrote in, ‘The Pentecostal Evangelist’ on March 8, 1970, and am unable to locate this article of which you wrote, and are quoted of in this article, about the Christmas Nativity.
    Ed Vitagliano comments that he has saved your article ‘all these years’.
    Would enjoy reading this ‘Nativity’ article…

    “In most Nativity scenes, he is in the background. The forefront belongs to Mary and Jesus, perhaps with an angel hovering overhead. Shepherds or Wise Men may be at one side or the other. And standing behind those occupying center stage, often in shadows, is Joseph.”
    please share –
    Blessings on your day –
