I used the long geneology in Matthew 1 as the main text for this message. In this sermon I was trying my best to unpack the oddness of the Christmas story and the God who ochestrated it. I'm afraid we have heard the "good news of great joy" from the Christmas story so often that we have allowed the story to lose its oddness. And, I believe, that if the Christmas story and the God behind it loses its oddness then, in some capacity, it loses its power.
So, I invite you to click on this link http://www.stroudsburgwesleyan.org/index.php?page=audio_sermons2&audio_id=31 and reply to the sermon on this blog with your own reflections, questions and comments.
I look forward to hearing from you.
