Sermon of January 1, 2012–“Who Are These People, Anyway?”

This sermon is my attempt to struggle with the roles of Simeon and Anna in Chapter 2 of Luke. It occurred to me during the preparation of the sermon how important they are to the infancy story of Jesus, yet we have overlooked them–that’s a great irony because they were probably overlooked in Jesus’ day as well.

This sermon has a lot to do with aging and wisdom, evangelism, and the one reference is from Michale Foss’ Real Faith for Real Life: Living the Six Marks of Discipleship.

The sermon is here: Who Are These People, Anyway?
