Sunday Sermon: "Our Three Gifts"
Like the magi paying homage to the Bethlehem baby, we bring the things of the world and lay them before the altar of God. Our gold, frankincense, and myrrh may be nothing more glorious than a tendency toward anxiety, guilt, and an excessive preoccupation with what other people (such as park rangers) may think of us. Whatever we offer in faith, God can use for his glory. My sermon for the second Sunday after Christmas is here.
