Session 5.52 for December 29, 2013
Today, we look at the story that immediately follows the visit of the Magi. At first, it seems like a strange story to read immediately following the delight of our Christmas celebrations. Yet, in many ways this text conveys to us what Jesus came to heal and to save. Jesus' life was not neat and pristine. Rather, Jesus lived his life in the midst of all the complicated mess around him. Jesus was born into a world that was suffering, and the message of his life is still vital to those who suffer today.
