The Epiphany of the Lord (S)

Isaiah 60:1-6; Psalm 72; Ephesians 3:2-3, 5-6; Matthew 2:1-12

Offered gifts

Gold from the seams of the earth, frankincense and myrrh from gum tree resin are the gifts placed before Jesus. How practical such gifts are is not the question. The magi give what they have. We all have gifts. What gifts do we place before Jesus? What ‘star’ guides me? Having met Jesus, will I now, as this New Year begins, take ‘a different way’ whakawhanaungatanga/making right relationship happen with Atua/God, tangata/people and whenua/land?
