Showing and revealing: a sermon from 5th January 2020

Do we always notice what’s going on in the Christmas story?

Gold is precious and lasts – symbolic of something important. Frankincense produces a strong, powerful scent and it’s smoke is symbolic of our prayers, rising to God in Heaven. Our longings, sorrows, hopes and joys – breathed in by God to recognise our need. Myrrh, almost antiseptic – reminding us of our need for healing and God’s power to fix us.The epiphany; how would we greet his new birth if it occurred today?
