Inspired by the Anne Weems poem ‘Getting to the front of the stable’, this new download from Nancy Cocks, helps us realise how rarely we listen to Joseph, even on Christmas Eve. We seldom hear from him in our Christmas pageants and carols. He’s just there in his brown bathrobe. But in Matthew’s Gospel, Joseph is a man of dreams (and of action!) This service brings Joseph out from the back of the stable and helps us to listen to the dreamer.

Nancy Cocks is a former Deputy Warden of Iona Abbey, after which she took up the post of professor at Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax, Nova Scotia and then served as minister of St John’s Presbyterian Church in Medicine Hat, Alberta before retirement. Nancy is the author of several books, including Invisible We See You and Growing Up With God.
