Merry Christmas, from my messy family to yours
We all come from a family, of one sort or another. And we all go through periods when our family loses us — either literally or otherwise. They don’t understand who we are, or are surprised to discover what we truly love, confused by who we were meant to be. And that is what we see in the story of the 12-year-old Jesus lingering in Jerusalem and hanging out at the temple.
