Christmas tells how God shines a kind of light that shows our steps out of Bedlam. We take these steps by finding resting places for our spiritual journey, places where God can replenish us. By being here in worship. Steps out of bedlam often about choice. We consciously choose to contribute to calm, not calamity.
We discover the joy and wonder that comes from making room for what really matters in Jesus’ birth. How we make room for the work & movement of God.
The angel’s message to Mary is a vital one for all of us: The Lord is with you…which allows people to do the unimaginable, the unexpected. It allows Mary to participate in God’s divine drama & bring the messiah into the world.
Angels introduce & move people into God’s future. They lead people to the purpose & work God has for them. This might be way God calls to you. God knows best how we need to enter our future and where our life can serve & find joy in service.
