Sermon: For the Love of Joseph

IMG_3251“It Takes a Village: For the Love of Joseph”

(December 6, 2015) Joseph makes a radical decision, when her learned of her alleged infidelity, first to divorce Mary quietly, and then not to divorce her at all but to join with her in marriage, and to raise their child together, even naming Jesus as his own son. Such love breaks barriers and shatters the conventions and expectations of the world. Where are we called to love like that in the world today– to forgive and draw in those who have wronged us, or those whom society preaches are unworthy of love? (Matthew 1:18-25)

Our advent theme is “It Takes a Village,” as we look at the people surrounding Jesus.

Folks who have previously had the problem if the link to the sermon being “corrupt,” does this link help?
