For most Americans, Christmas ended two weeks ago. The holiday meals have been eaten, the presents have been opened, the carols have been sung, and most of the decorations have been taken down. For most people, Christmas is over.
We in this building are different. We who read the gospel of Matthew and call ourselves followers of Jesus know that Christmas is not over just yet, because there’s still one part of the Christmas story left for us to read and reflect on. It’s the part of the story that says what happened after the party ended.
- Matthew 2:13 - 23
