The magi took a different road to avoid Herod. Wouldn’t it be good if we could take a different road today..from the hardship of a pandemic. The magi took a different road for protection..to avoid a bad situation. We may not be so eager to take a different road if it means being uncomfortable to call people out on their racist comments or tone or understanding. Or of advocating for the least of these over our own comfort. The magi’s choice was a radical one. A road that allowed Jesus to live. We are likely on a different road not of our choice. What we can do is decide what to make of the different road. Try to take that journey. God is with you on that different road.
