Points for Thought and Dis­cus­sion From

  1. What are the polit­ic­al implic­a­tions of this all-too famil­i­ar story? (Luke 2)
  2. When have your rushed to tell someone good news? (Luke 2:15–18)
  3. What do we learn about a leader’s respons­ib­il­ity for justice and right­eous­ness for the lowly? (Isai­ah 9:2–7)
