You may have noticed a pattern through some of the posts this week. Our Sunday school class was taught by Rev. Jan Thornton last Sunday. She focused on Joseph -- what can we learn from Joseph and how he responded to the Angel's instructions regarding Mary.

She said that exhibited mercy, a belief in the mysterious, and courage. These are characteristics the Holy Spirit enabled him to demonstrate, and we are called to demonstrate them as well.

Many things she said struck me as "a hah!" moments, but especially, "Joseph didn't have the advantage of Jesus' teaching." He didn't, but Jesus had the advantage of Joseph's teaching.

That idea was the basis of the three poems: Joseph's Mercy, Joseph's Faith, and Joseph's Courage.
