C06: The Epiphany of the Lord, Year C (2019)

Scott Spencer

Scott Spencer, New Testament scholar and author, preaches the story of the magi from Matthew 2:1-12. Spencer croons James Taylor’s “Home by Another Way” to highlight the choice of the magi. “They tell me that life is a miracle and I figured that they’re right. But Herod’s always out there, he’s got our cards on file. It’s a lead pipe cinch, if we give an inch, old Herod likes to take a mile. It’s best to go home by another way…We got this far to a lucky star, but tomorrow is another day…keep a weather eye to the chart on high and go home another way.” Herod’s way or God’s way? The magi had a choice, and so do we.
