January 6 is a day of stark contrasts. On the one hand, we celebrate how the wise men faithfully navigated the machinations of a king who tried to trick them and followed a star to find and worship the Christ Child. On the other hand, we mourn what happened one year ago when our nation was in disarray as insurrectionists violently stormed the United States Capitol. Yet this is the world in which we live, where faith and violence exist side by side. I hope you will pray with me that 2022 will be a year when those who love Jesus will have the faith and wisdom to follow the star instead of following the mob.
