Jesus wasn’t invited.
He wasn’t expected.
And someone who invades without an invitation and who appears without an expectation invariably adds some inconvenience to your life.
In the case of Jesus, many of the inconveniences land in Joseph’s lap.
We’re going to look at those this Sunday. Is it OK if I say I really like this message and can’t wait to give it?
I like the excavation of Scripture in it. I like the patterns that emerge. I like the props I’ll use. I really like the bottom line and the many ways it intersects with our lives.
And, just for good measure, I like that I will be delivering just after we are led in in music by our Worship Choir — a full on, full color, full note celebration of sound.
