Father Jeff compares the Time of Herod and the Shepherd of Israel as the magi (hundreds of them?!) come to visit. We begin with Isaiah 60:1-6. We have a different reading of Matthew 2:1-12 that linked here in the recording as part of the Godly Play exhibition of the Gospel.
Before you learn the tender gravity of kindness
you must travel where the Indian in a white poncho
lies dead by the side of the road.
You must see how this could be you,
how he too was someone
who journeyed through the night with plans
and the simple breath that kept him alive.Kindness Naomi Shihab Nye – 1952- https://poets.org/poem/kindness
Father Jeff recommended The Two Popes on Netflix.
