God, for sure, has a sense of humor. Because just a few weeks ago, the reading from Nehemiah 10 included this long list of names which, let’s just admit it, were impossible to pronounce. And rather than read through the list as a part of the scripture reading, I suggested that we skip over those tongue twisters and if you really wanted to, that you could try them out in the privacy of your own home. We all laughed. And then, I was scheduled for the first Sunday of Advent and the assigned reading for the day was Matthew, chapter 1.
