We can choose a better way
December 11, 2022

Sermon Excerpt

As far as Joseph knows, his new wife has been unfaithful to him and broken their marriage contract.And yet,instead of punishment,he chooses not to publicly disgrace or humiliate her. This interruption in his life becomes a holy invitation when the angel comes to him in a dream and says, “Do not be afraid.” When he awakes, Joseph once again has the courage to choose a better way.He chooses to stay with Mary, to become an adoptive parent. He chooses peace over violence, grace over condemnation.
