Christmas program at The Adcock Chapel and The Ark Encounter

Written by Michael DeStefano, The Wonder and the Miracle is a personal invitation to encounter the incarnate Christ! The Christmas story is the story of a miracle – the God of the universe coming to be one of us, coming to save and transform us. It’s a story we’re all familiar with – but what if we weren’t?

In The Wonder and the Miracle we meet a young woman named Alice. She’s studying philosophy at an American university in the 1890s – a time when rational optimism was running high – and her research only leads her to have more questions than answers. We follow her as she encounters the Christmas story in a unique way, discovering that the beauty of the Incarnation is not just a miracle for the whole world, but that it is a miracle that is offered – to her, to you, and to me.

The Wonder and the Miracle will be staged in two locations this year:
