This morning, we begin thinking in earnest about Christmas. To complete our year-long emphasis on the word “Story” I am prepared to preach The Story of Christmas as given in each of the four Gospels over the next four Sundays. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all give us a little bit different version. This is not contradictory, understand, but complementary. Some like Luke, give us a lot of detail; others, like Mark, do not give us much. Today, we start with Matthew.
