January 1, 2023 –  1st Sunday of Christmas
Alan Willadsen, Elder


“This week’s Gospel passage reminds us of Ecclesiastes, in which the author wrote, “One generation goes, another comes . . . Only that shall happen which has happened, only that occur which has occurred; there is nothing new beneath the sun.”  Matthew draws parallels with Exodus and quotes extensively from the Hebrew Scripture in telling the story of Jesus’s early travels.  We read of parental protection, acts of the empire, leadership succession, and the sins of the father.  Against this discouraging start, Isaiah reminds us of God’s presence among us.”
