Roots for Windstorms
Here in Seattle, we’ve experienced an unusually windstormy couple of weeks, which makes an apt metaphor for our lives of gusty national politics, devastating news cycles, and the sturm & drang of December activities, expectations, and negotiations of awkward or painful or painfully nonexistent family dynamics. What will root us in these days? Pastor Megan mines Matthew’s narrative of the birth of Jesus for roots to steady us in the windstorms of our world and lives.
