Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Matthew Welsch, "The Day After Christmas"

December 31, 2023

When you hear the Christmas story, do you ever wonder what happened the day after? When the shepherds had returned to their fields and the reality of new parenthood set in for Mary and Joseph?

In the days and weeks that followed that first Christmas, “the world looked very much the same as it had, and in many ways, the same as it does now,” preached Father Matt on Sunday. “Jesus was born into a violent and unstable world;” the difference now is that, “God is standing alongside us, pointing the way to light and life.” Our job in this season of Christmas is to celebrate and share the “reckless, abundant, and infinite” love of God with others.
