Through God Becoming a Nazarene
Emergent Nazarenes

By James Diggs

As Advent lead us into the Christmas season and now as it comes to an end as that Lectionary leads us into Epiphany, I have never been as enamored with the incarnation as I have been over the last few months or so. This last Sunday, December 30th, our church community reflected on the narrative in Matthew 2:13-23 which spoke of the horrific slaughter of children by Herod post the first Christmas.

For most of us it starts at the age of 2 with one simple question, "why?" As we get older the questions become more complex and the answers require more nuance. This nuance tends to bother us, because according to modern logic each question presents an either/or a right/wrong equation to solve. So we say for instance…READ MORE HERE
