This Sunday, we follow Jesus to a wedding at Cana. We see in this story a reminder to see God at work in all parts of our lives, not just the religious parts.
As we read about Jesus' baptism, we are reminded of our own baptism. We are reminded of the promises God gave to us, and above all, that we are always a child of God, no matter what comes our way.
In this message, we look at Matthew's account of the wise men coming to worship the newborn Jesus. Their journey involves meeting two kings: one ruthlessly defending his power, the other full of of love and grace for all people. In their story, we see what it means to look for Jesus in our lives. We are reminded that encountering Jesus will change us, and make all the things we strive for in life (money, power, status) seem insignificant in the light of God's love for us.
A sermon for the first Sunday after Christmas, based on Psalm 148. As we celebrate the birth of Christ, of God coming among us in flesh and blood, we recognize that ALL of creation is celebrating as well. God has come among us to bring healing and wholeness to ALL of creation!
