Between the Lines: Sunday after Christmas: January 1, 2012

Text: Luke 2: [21] 22-40

Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying, “Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace, according to your word . . .”

Simeon's song of praise.

What is it about this encounter that convinces Simeon that he is, at last, dismissed? What has he been waiting for? What is the word that assured him through these days, months, years? What might he do tomorrow? Will there be a new task, a new commission? I wonder.- Andy Kille
