Advent Story Dec. 9

This is a fictionalized story based on events which took place on the American Continent at the time of Christ's birth. For anyone not of the LDS faith, this might be unfamiliar territory so I'll try to give you a quick rundown. The Book of Mormon gives an account of the people who were led out of Jerusalem and across the ocean to the American Continent about 600 years before Christ was born. It talks about what happens to them and testifies that they were not only aware of Christ and his doctrines but also eventually saw him after he was resurrected. This particular Christmas story takes place during the period of time right before Christ was born when many of the people who had once believed that Christ would come had fallen away from their faith or had given up. They had become wicked and were persecuting those who still believed. You can read the real chapters out of the Book of Mormon here if you would like. Then click on The New Star to read about what happens when two friends are caught in the middle of two different ideologies. How do they work it out? How can Christ heal old hurts?
