On this fourth Sunday of Advent, we will hear the story of Bathsheba. It can a triggering story, especially for those who have shared Bathsheba's pain. But Bathsheba's inclusion in the genealogy of Jesus is a reminder of the promise of Christ, who comes to shed light on the brokenness of humanity's grasp at power. And it's a reminder that sin does not have the final say for who we are in God's love.
