December 4, 2015

The 2015 Christmas service draws upon the journeys that take place in the nativity narratives: the journey to Bethlehem, the journey of the Magi, and the journey to Egypt. To these journeys we add the unprecedented mass migration of peoples around the world. Migration – the crossing of borders – is embedded throughout the Christmas narrative. The Christmas story is not only foundational to our understanding of Christ’s Incarnation, but a living narrative that places Christ’s journey on earth in solidarity with the border crossings of millions upon millions today.
