On the Sunday before Christmas every year the Church hears a long list of names of the generations of Christ. From Abraham until Joseph the Church reminds us of the righteous ancestors of Christ described in the Old Testament. When you combine them with the saints of the New Testament we get a complete picture of the family of Christ, our family. Our ancestors in the Lord have two important things in common. None of them were perfect but all of them were committed to God. That is the story of the Church. We may not always get it right, but we are always committed to God.
