January 5, 2020 – Jonathan Chute “Seeking and Finding”
In this Sunday’s gospel wise men from the East follow a star to distant Bethlehem. They are travelers from afar, astrologers who have noted the appearance of a star in the sky. They are rather unexpected guests at this happy occasion. We might not even have invited them, if it were up to us. But they remind us that the birth of the Messiah is more than just a local event. They are the first known worshipers of Jesus. Jonathan’s sermon, “Seeking and Finding,” draws on the story found in Matthew 2:1-12.
