2016 12 18 Advent 4: Joseph in the Twilight of the Dawn

Everybody has gifts that they've received that they would rather not open. Joseph received one such gift at the announcement of his betrothed that she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit. In this sermon for the fourth Sunday of Advent, Fr. Paul Wheatley talks about Joseph, how we we make decisions of faith with incomplete evidence, and the way God calls us to trust him in the darkness just before the light has dawned.
