North Carolina Lutheran pastor Nancy shares her thoughts on Epiphany, reflecting on how her own view of the wise men has changed over the years, the complete otherness of those strange visitors of the Christ Child, and how that visit is related to today’s “Merry Christmas” vs. “Happy Holidays” war.
“The presence of the magi in Bethlehem challenges our narrow thinking about who’s in and who’s out. Often, when we say all are included, we mean, all are included, as long as they meet our standards. And the whole point of Christianity is to convert those who aren’t like us to become like us so that they’ll be included, too.”
