Joseph-Defender of the Fatherless

It was to be a quiet divorce. A silent separation.

I imagine the first conversation between Mary and Joseph, the one before the angel visited him. Mary coming to him with tears, saying, “I’m pregnant and I swear, I know it’s hard to believe, but this is the chosen one, the Son of God.” Joseph stood contemplating fact or fiction, excuse or explanation. He wondered whether to accept Mary’s word or hunt down the scoundrel — “who did this to my fiance?” Maybe he seethed.

Mary was so tender, so meek and mild, maybe delusional.

  1. Seth — I just left a comment on the other site but wanted to try to get you here too. Can I repost this over at http://www.wearegraftedin.com? I’d love to. I would need a short bio blurb for you and a picture for the bio. Let me know ASAP!
