Wise men?

No seasonal doubts about the Christmas story this year. Just a simple thought...

The only people who were looking for and responded appropriately to the coming of Jesus the first time around were pagans.

The good, bible-believing, church-going people of the day missed it entirely.

It makes me wonder. If the same thing happened today, would the people in the church notice, or would we be too wrapped up in our own traditions to see? What about the un-churched around us, how many of them are looking, and ready to respond, but can't see Jesus in the 'xmas' traditions?
