A sermon for the Fourth Sunday of Advent for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Greensboro, Alabama, 12/18/22:
Principal text: Matthew 1:18-25
“Matthew’s Christmas, without the familiar and comfortable manger scene, reminds us that Christmas is about God coming to us and God with us. Christmas is about the beginning of the recreation of the world. It challenges us to act beyond our current understanding of righteousness and compassion. It challenges us to give up our expectations of what God should be doing.”
