Homily for Christmas Eve

The celebration of our Lord's Nativity begins with Christmas Eve (4:00 p.m. here at Hope). At this service we hear Matthew's account of the Birth of Jesus--Matthew 1:18-25--the account from Joseph's perspective. This year I took on the bit of conventional wisdom that the Christmas season is "all about giving." As we discover from the Matthew 1 Christmas story, there's a different focus: "It's All About RECEIVING."
