(I am captivated by and participating in the beauty of Port Alfred in this Christ Mass week and so too lazy to write a full Blog)
Here is my micro sketch of my sermon for Epiphany this Sunday.
I have been contemplating how the Magi contrast with the rash of arrogant religious Wise Guys out there at present. You know the people who have words from God for everyone and who have it all packaged and sealed. Real Wise Guys…..Ugh!
Seems to me the Magi were very different from the Christian Taliban.
- They read and studied widely beyond their own culture.
- They were prepared to go on a journey to discover truth.
- They were discerning, and saw through Herod’s power play.
- They were not too arrogant to bow the knee before mystery when they found it.
I wanna be like them.
