It's the second year in a row Josoma has opted for a display that not everyone was comfortable with.
Last year, he had the names of the towns where mass shootings happened displayed on the wall behind the nativity scene. This year, he says feedback has been pretty good.
A nativity scene at St. Susanna's in Dedham, Massachusetts, that is stirring up controversy. The pastor said that's what it's supposed to do.
"The folks here seem to appreciate it," Josoma said.
But not everyone is comfortable with it.
"My personal feeling is that it's inappropriate. We don't have to make everything a statement," someone told Boston 25 News.
But Josoma says that is just the idea, and while not everyone is happy with it, he hopes it will get people talking.
Despite the pushback, Josoma says they have no plans to take the display down.
