This week's character from Face Of Our Faith is the Anna (Luke 2:36-38)
Why do you think Luke included the accounts of Simeon and Anna meeting the newborn Christ? Why were these details important enough to include when telling how Mary and Joseph presented Jesus at the Temple?
Perhaps Luke knew that those on the outside seemed to have the nearest access to Jesus.Those on the margins saw what others could not yet see. They knew without really knowing, because it was the kind of knowledge that shifts the chemistry of your heart. She saw and she knew, so she lived out her days giving thanks for the promise of a world made new.
