For we observed his star at its rising

A sermon offered for the 2nd Sunday After Christmas, January 3, 2021, at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Roanoke, Alabama.

“Herod’s response to the birth of Christ was fear, deception, and violence. The Magi’s response was wonder and wandering, and ultimately joy upon finding Jesus in Bethlehem. In that little town of Bethlehem, the fear of the powerful met the hope of the powerless.”

Principal Text: Matthew 2:1-12
