1st Sunday after Christmas, Sunday, December 29th, 2019
God did not become incarnate in the son of Mary and Joseph to bring us a mid-winter festival of peace and contentment. No, God came into this world where families wander homeless and corrupt tyrants rule by murder and deceit. God broke into this world because this world needs a Savior for it cannot save itself. The slaughter of the innocent, the tears of Rachel weeping for her children, remind us that we live in the midst of brokenness. But in the midst of the brokenness, we also have work to do.
Bible Passage: Matthew 2:13-23
