What we should do for all people, is simply point them to Jesus. To invite them to explore who he is, and then get out of the way! And let the Holy Spirit do the work of God!

Fr. Bill talks about the traditional Christmas story, how it differs from the story in today's Gospel, and talks about John, who appeared in the wilderness.
