Marking the Presentation of the Lord, we ask ourselves whether Simeon and Anna's reaction to the infant Jesus in the Temple is completely unique, or perhaps something we see much more often when parents present their babies in our faith communities. Is it possible that every infant and every child carries and renews the promise of healing for the world, and is a sign of hope and faith in the future? We reflect this morning on the wonder, joy, fears and excitement that can accompany our encounter with a child.
