Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
The wise men were confident: they had seen his star in the east. They were not astrologers or soothsayers. Doubtless they had the Torah, probably deposited in their land during the Babylonian captivity. And there they saw that a star should arise out of Juda, and a scepter. So when they saw the star, they knew where to go: to the land of the Jews; and thus they went straight to Jerusalem, the city of the great king. And so they naively inquired, and when they heard the prophecy of Micah (which they did not have before), they set out for Bethlehem. And then the star which they had seen at their homeland in the East, reappeared, and led them to Christ. Thus they were rewarded for following the word of God. And thus must we do: follow the word of God, as they did; and thus shall we be rewarded, finding the Christ, and departing to our homes another way than the way of the world: for Christ is the Way, and on this Way we shall be blessed. Sermon for Epiphany, and the video of the service is here.
