Matthew 2:2 For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.
There are multiple ways for each of us to find Jesus. The wise men found Jesus through studying the stars. I was born into an Episcopal family, and so I grew up hearing about Jesus every Sunday morning. Others find Jesus through study or a conversion experience.
I’m not sure whether to trust astrology to find the truth, but I am convinced we can trust that the truth will find us. Every time I think I understand God and how things work in this world, something comes along and surprises me. Other people and other stories show me there are many ways to stumble upon the truth.O God, who revealed your only Son to the Gentiles by the leading of a star, grant that we, who know you now by faith, may enjoy the splendor of your love. Amen.
