A Strange Way to Save the World  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 13–23

Walking in the Dark  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 13–23
Summary: Joseph was not the only one to be told to take a walk in the dark to a place he had never been. He was not the only one called to lead his family to safety. Each of us is called to take our family to the only safe place there is, a place of holiness. The walk may be difficult. It may have to be taken in the dark of doubt or even the dark of not knowing. But ours is a God who walks with us and who can be counted on to bring us home.

Summary:  Joseph was warned in a dream to take his new family to Egypt and, later, to bring it home again. But Herod exacted a terrible price from the families with infant boys of the area around Bethlehem. Evil still threatens children today. How can we respond?

The Tube of Long Seeing  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 1–12
Summary: A good telescope brings distant things into focus. In somewhat the same way, the Bible brings Jesus into focus, helping us to learn what he has to say to us. In other words, the Bible enables us to have an epiphany.

Looking Ahead  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 13–23

Let Go, Let God  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 13–23
Summary: When the plans we so carefully make are changed against our wishes, God may well smile knowing that the detour will take us to a better place. Joseph had not planned to go to Egypt anymore than he had planned to go to Bethlehem, but he was a man who knew the voice of God. He knew the difference between listening to God and attempting to be God. This story of a trip to Egypt, which we have heard so many times, is an invitation to all of us to rethink the way we respond to so many of life’s unexpected and sometimes unwelcome moments.

Going Home a Different Way  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 1–12
Summary: While each year, nativity scenes depict the wise men at the stable, their visit may have come as much as two years later. Who were these mysterious men? Where did they come from? Did they know their gifts would hold as much significance as the church places on them? We can still learn much from these men who came seeking and worshiping the king of the Jews.

Chosen to Follow the Lord  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 1–12
Summary: Jesus’ epiphany celebrates his manifestation to the world, but it also demonstrates how he was recognized for his unique role in salvation history. As Jesus was sent by God into our world and was recognized for who he was, so the Lord has chosen us to be his followers. Let us hear the Master’s call and willingly chose to follow him.

An Illogical Course  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 1–12
Summary: Epiphany is about the surprising and seeming illogical courses God lays out before us. God’s way is not the course of routine, of ritual, of tradition, of habit. And if we follow God’s will, chances are, our lives won’t take a logical course. While we search for meaning in the routine, God moves in an unexpected direction. Epiphany calls us to listen for and celebrate the unexpected and surprising paths God wants us to take.
