An Advent Series for families designed to prepare our hearts for Christmas. In the midst of the gloom of winter, the darkest and coldest of seasons, Christians still wait with great anticipation for the happiest season of all, Advent. Travel back in time and relive the coming of Christ to Earth, as He gives up His throne next to God the Father to enter this world as a baby born in a manger. Filmed at England’s beautiful Blockley Church, God Came Near is narrated by renowned author and pastor Max Lucado, who brings his best-selling book to life. This series explores the topics of Simeon, the man who waited for the birth of the Messiah, as well as the stories of Joseph and Mary, the true history of Saint Nicholas, the hectic holiday season, Christmas traditions, and more. Above all, however, Lucado encourages viewers to be like the wise men of the Christmas story and start seeking the Lord each day of our lives.
