Being God’s Light

Here is my sermon for today. I’ve called it “Being God’s Light” even though the notion of light only comes in towards the end. Today is The Epiphany, when we remember the visit of the Magi (aka ‘the Wise Men’ or ‘the Three Kings’) to the infant Jesus and when we reflect in particular on the universal reach of the Gospel. In this sermon I try to draw aside the mythology that has built up around the Magi and uncover what kind of people they really were, and in light of that to ask why Matthew included this narrative in his Gospel of Jesus. Ultimately, I am calling for us all to take up the challenge to be God’s light in the world.

The sermon is based mostly on Matthew 2:1-12, but also on Isaiah 60:1-6 and Ephesians 3:1-12.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site
    when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
