Welcome to episode twelve of the St Matthew’s in Conversation podcast. Listen in as Revd Bryce leads a conversation about life, faith, God and the Bible.

As we leave 2020, we are hoping for a different year to come. But do we want something really new, or something safe and familiar? Bryce reflects on a story from Scripture, when Joseph and Mary take newborn Jesus to Jerusalem. They meet two elderly people in the temple who, instead of looking to the past, are keenly looking forward to God’s future. Can we follow their example?
