The Magi and the Three Questions
Pastor Rob Myallis   -  

Christmas II (Dec 31, 2023)

Jan 6 is traditionally the date reserved for Matthew 2:1-11, the Magi arriving in Bethlehem to worship Jesus.  However, this year January 6 is on a Saturday and Sunday, January 7 is the Baptism of Jesus; therefore, we moved up reflection on the Magi and their journey.

You beat the level Mario — but as it turns out, they moved the real princess to another castle!

It is a metaphor for life, where the goal posts of achievement always seem to be moving.  Questions, based on the story of the Magi and their gifts, which are an invitation to move out of doing life as it is a video game.

  • If you get where you are going, will you have found what you are looking for?
  • Are your friends…friends for the party or friends for the feast?
  • What will you need to leave behind to move ahead?
