"God, the Refugee"
scripture: Matthew 2:13-23; Hebrews 2:10-18
With "Joy to the World" still ringing through the air, the first Sunday after Christmas brings an unexpected story: Mary & Joseph are forced to flee with their newborn, Jesus, to escape the wrath of Herod, who wants Jesus killed. This sermon explores the profound meaning of the incarnation in this story, and for us and our world 2,000 years later.
