Today Mary and Joseph take Jesus to the temple and they receive some unexpected and strange words of blessing. This text could be filed under “things not to say to new parents” but that doesn’t hold anyone back today. Today we look more closely at this strange blessing and listen for what it might mean to us today as we come down off of our own “Christmas high.”
