Advent - Matthew 2:1-12: Are you a Star Gazer?

Advent - Matthew 1:18-21: Christmas is shrouded in mystery. The frost in the air, the snow on the trees and the incandescent lights all add to the ambience of mystery. Then you have the presents, wrapped to conceal a great gift. The biblical narrative is also cloaked in mystery. A child born in a manger. A virgin birth. God with skin on. How do we …
