Posted on : Dec 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: This Sunday's Service

There are many layers to the familiar story of the Magi following the star and bringing gifts to baby Jesus. On one level the story evokes some warm sentimental feeling within us, on another level it leaves us unsettled. It reminds us that not all welcome the birth of light into this world. Light is feared by some because it opens the way for justice and peace to enter into our world. There are those who have a lot to lose if justice and peace should reign in this world. To give birth to justice is a difficult and painful process because those who fear it will do anything to prevent it from being birthed into this world. invoice template word homely.
